These ships in Lyme Bay have been with us during the pandemic in 2020 and are still with us as the pandemic continues into 2021. These outstanding photographs taken by David Caunter conjure up many emotions, the ships look majestic and are wonderful to look at; however, there is a sadness that they cannot cruise around the world at this time.
