The Deutschland

This German 5 star luxury liner arrived last night here at our dock. This is the largest ship ever known to dock here in the East London Docklands. After 3 hours of expert piloting at high tide the 600 X 70 ft. liner squeezed through the locks with inches to spare. The ship will leave tomorrow but will return for the May 2012 Olympics and will be home to the German Olympic team. We live at the top of the tall building, center of the first and last picture so we keep an eye on the canal traffic. I love this place!
