Aurora - February 2015 - Post 2

Early morning arrival at Station Pier, Melbourne 3/3.

Tim Ryan, a good friend, taking photos of the ship sailing from Melbourne.
Above and below: two of Tim Ryan's photos.

Backing up to the berth in Burnie, Tasmania 4/3.
 Other shipping in Burnie.

ICS Silver Lining arriving in evening light to take our Burnie berth. She's under the command of a friend of mine, Captain Andrew Burn.
On arrival at Sydney, the ship had to moor at Athol Bight until Carnival Legend sailed from Circular Quay that evening. We were tendered in to a pier alongside the Opera House.
The ship moored with a sort of Mediterranean Moor with both anchors down and stern moorings to this buoy.

Carnival Legend at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay. I'll be joining her in late April for an 18 night cruise from Sydney to New Caledonia, Fiji, Tahiti and disembarking in Honolulu.
Sun Princess, another old regular of mine, sailing for New Zealand.
Carnival Legend sailing for the South Pacific

Heading in to the berth, in evening light.

  1. Some great captures here, Tim! Did you manage to find the treasure at the end of the rainbow?
