Harbor Pilots busy on Memorial Day Weekend

The roving eye of looked up from fishing long enough to view this car carrier vessel making way for the container cargo vessel. Charleston Harbor is blessed with much worldwide shipping, and there are no holidays for global commerce. The car carrier was making a slow turn around Castle Pinckney while the cargo container was already underway, but from my vantage point, the tug boat operator was probably keeping a sharp eye on the situation considering the strong currents and high winds that can affect such high profile ships. All in all, it was just another day's work in Charleston harbor.
