Southend on Sea Pier to Whitstable and back again.

At Whitstable we were joined by the Kingswear Castle.

The Waverley's splendid funnels viewed from the harbour.

Even the gulls came out to have a look.

Soon the Kingswear Castle was on its way.
Followed by the Waverley.

Passengers enjoying the band.

Then back at Southend.

Farewell Waverley, I look forward to my next trip.

An unusual meeting took place at Avonmouth on 15 & 16 October 2003.  Balmoral had finished her season but was unable to proceed to her winter berth at Bristol owing to problems with the lock gates there.   Then Waverley arrived after the conclusion of her Thames season and to await her final weekend of sailings on the Bristol Channel.
