Ships in Jervis bay

25 Feb 2018

The Australian Navy has been conducting naval exercises off the south-east coast all week. Various ships have been in and about the bay over this time.  Today under a very grey, rainy misty sky, most of the fleet were inside the bay and stationed near HMAS Creswell.
It was very hard to get clear pictures because of the conditions.  I counted 10 ships and one submarine. I only took pictures of the nearest clearest ships, the others were too distant in the conditions at hand.
The bay was a hive of activity with barges and small navy boats travelling between the ships.

They made quite a sight despite the rain and mist.
