...on the 'port side' of town



The "William M". A RUBY tugboat going out from the harbor house to greet a tanker coming into the harbor. Tina's Picstory theme last week, which I didn't participate in was 'wet' & this week it's azure for the newest photo challenge. I don't think you can get much more wet than the sea. And the sky is a light azure blue... LOL [next week Tina's photo challenge is the letter "H"]

  1. When we take our boat out on the river, we get to see lots of tugs working. I don't know why I am always so fascinated by these boats - I take photos every time! This looks like a nice big one. I always enjoy seeing them working - I once saw t of them pushing about 300' of floating pipe down the river!

  5. The big tankers take on a mighty persona. Yet the smaller and less flamboyant tug is what is needed when Mr. Mighty enters the harbor. Big is important but the tug alone decides who gets t offload the cargo...nice ruby tug!

  11. Any time we go over to the coast or even here on the rivers on of my favorite things to watch is the tugs. They are amazing workhorses of the water.
