All aboard for Southend

On Wednesday Keith and I travelled aboard the Jacob Marley from Rochester Pier up the River Medway and across the River Thames to Southend.

Passing under Rochester Bridge
Upnor Castle
Lightships at Hoo (now used as house boats)
Hoo Fort
Kingsnorth Power station. The day after the trip the building on the left was demolished
Garrison Point Sheerness at the point where the Medway joins the Thames. The old fort and the new navigation control tower
Approaching Southend Pier
Jacob Marley moored on Southend Pier

It had been a relatively calm crossing with little traffic in the main sea lane leading from London to the English Channel.
