Something you don’t see on the river every day. Where I am staying is where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Savannah River. This is where all the cargo ships enter for the long, narrow journey to the Georgia Port Authority.
This evening, a huge ship came in at low tide and needed the assistance of 2 tugboats. Those little boats are mighty and can maneuver those huge ships. You see them in Savannah assisting with the right turn to the port but I’ve never seen them escorting a ship in. Sometimes they will follow one out to the end of the river, but this was rare. If you look closely, one tug is tied on to the ship’s port side bow and one is following. Very cool. And an even stranger thing, you could hear and feel this ship coming in. This is unusual because I’ve noticed how eerily-quite they are. They are often there before you even notice. Stealthy.
A gloomy day that threatened rain all day. I went in for new toenail color and to wash and vacuum the car. With company this week, we had visited the front beach several times and brought back lots of sand.
The shrimp boat has anchored in for the night so it’s gonna rain. Better than your local weatherman. Every single time!
