Eastbourne ship "fire" - for Bik
During a series of comments on someone’s photo, Bik said he used to be a sailor, and I said that maybe he could explain something I’d seen at Eastbourne – a ship venting smoke, looking as though it were on fire. He asked for details as to the kind of ship, but I’ve only just found the photos.
I don’t know if the ship in the first pic is the same as the others – obviously, the smoke stopped me comapring outlines!
It did look rather dramatic – someone at the hotel said that ships “often” did this sort of thing but didn’t know why.
The first pic was one of a series of “general beach” pictures; the other two were the next day, when I looked out of the hotel window and saw what seemed to be a ship on fire, and dived for my camera.
You can see how much I zoomed in for the third picture by the size of the date
