Ocean Mist at Leith, Edinburgh

It is difficult to describe what the town of Leith is like today, I can see it would have been a very busy port years ago. Today it is changing. Maybe Leith is to Edinburgh what the docks are to Liverpool or Salford Quays are to Manchester. But the docks at Leith are still being used, and at the same time there is a large shopping centre nearby and new trendy apartments popping up all over the place. The steamer in the photograph above is no longer really called Ocean Mist but is now a piano bar, nightclub and restaurant complex called Cruz. It is permanently moored here on The Shore at Leith. However I have never been inside.
