Cuxhaven (25-06-08)

The sun was still over the horizon when I realized that I overslept the passage of the VLOC „Grace N“. She sailed from Hamburg in the early morning hours and so she was off my photo location around 6 o’clock.

„Grace N“ trading for years for the German Neu Seeschifffahrt Hamburg has arrived Cuxhaven’s landmark Kugelbake and therewith the open sea.
