A couple of weeks ago I did a post that had the tail end of a freighter moving through the Corpus Christi ship channel on the way to pick up some oil. I wasn’t quick enough to get a good picture. You can go HERE to see it if you want. I was finally successful yesterday in getting a couple of shots of a freighter just as it entered the channel from the Gulf. Here is one picture.
Notice how high the ship rides in the water. This shows you the boat is empty.
The ship’s name is Cape Bird and this photo shows you the bow wave. Usually, there are dolphins swimming in the bow wave playing a game of racing the ship. There were none when I took the photo.
Here is a closer photo as the ship passes and begins to move further into the channel on its way to pick up oil.
I took this final shot which includes a couple of old salts pondering what they should have for lunch. “How about fish fellas?”
