Waiting for better times

From a short visit to London last year, with memory flashback to Merseyside.
An almost cult ship that crossed the Mersey River for many years.
It looks somewhat neglected lying in the port of London, not the best nursing home
– maybe those pigeons are waiting for departure towards better times.?

MV Royal Iris was moved for London in the 90s to be floating nightclub
– not happened, the planned moving back for Merseyside.
Just the moving was estimated to cost a significant six-figure amount in english £
– still moored at her berth at Woolwich (London) and increasingly derelict.
