Tankers on the Forth

Sitting by the Firth of Forth on a visit to Edinburgh, looking at the holy Island of Inchcolm. It brought back memories of my childhood, visiting by boat with my family. A tanker was passing along most likely to Grangemouth. I was reminded that a new line of Dragon ships were on there way to bring shale gas from Pennsylvania. It happened the next day, the first shipment. Storms prevent the ship from docking for its celebratory welcome. Perhaps there are other forces unhappy at the prospect of this trafficking of fossil fuel.
