   The weather this dull spring day had been really quite unpleasant, with the sky completely covered with thick and low and menacing grey clouds, persistent light (and occasionally heavy) rain and visibility sometimes reduced to maybe 100m or less.

   But, somehow, strangely, the God of the weather must have smiled as LARIXBORG arrived at Ayr and the rain stopped, a little weak and wan sunshine seemed to bathe the harbour and visibility improved to allow our brave photographer to take the images of the ship.
