It must have been a flaming big something Colin as it was just an indistinct smudge on the horizon using the naked eye.
At one stage thought it might have been you come to check up on me as I hadn't been on the forum for a while. ;)

Now the French are building a frigate - L'Hermione at Rochefort. That could be a sight to see coming over the horizon.
I hope it will pay a visit to Britain before it sails to America.
