Whilst I've been photographing around the dry docks over the last few weeks I've not been paying much attention to the area around the wet dock. But when I went down there on Friday evening, contractors had almost completed clearing all the trees from the wet dock area. And immediately I regretted not having put more effort into documenting that part of the site.
So this is just a splurge of the photos that I have taken of the wet dock area without a whole lot of commentary.
