A Paddle Steam along the coast.

THE PS Waverley

THE PS Waverley

Yesterday we took trip on the PS Waverley the last sea going paddle steamer. Our trip started at 106 berth Southampton sailing at 10.00hrs then down Southampton Water into Portsmouth harbour. We then headed for Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. Later   on to the Needles and around the point into choppier seas before heading back. The Waverley was built on the Clyde in 1947 to replace the original Waverley that was lost off Dunkirk in 1940. This blog shows pictures of the paddle steamer my next blogs will show the pictures of the trip.
