Bristol Harbour is a lovely place for a walk and a bit of a daydream.

It can be fun to let the mind meander while speculating about the stories behind the hundreds of boats you can see docked each day.

Their names often give exotic clues about the tales these vessels could tell, from African Queen to Sudana.

Then there are the Bristolian references, such as Miss Milly – surely a nod to the beloved fried chicken chain, despite a slight difference in spelling.

Often the names have a musical twist, such as Sea Chord. Sea-ya was more ambiguous – a reference to OutKast’s 2003 hit Hey Ya or a simple farewell to life on the land?
