All dressed up and waiting to go.

Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 4 February 2013 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Another shot of another DFDS ferry loading up at the front end with passengers for Amsterdam. She's berthed at the Northumbria Quay on the River Tyne and shot from East Holborn on the South Shields side of the river.
These are RORO (roll on, roll off) ferries.


My wife has been admitted to hospital and I have two children and a part time job to look after. I have pre-posted pictures up until Sunday, not sure when I will be back on a regular daily basis. Just hoping that it won't be too long.
