This post is dedicated to one of my most devoted readers/commenters. It’s you, Mage!
Actually, this is what 3000 people stuck in traffic looks like. Carnival Fantasy was scheduled to sail at 4 pm New Years Day, but two incoming vessels had priority. Here was 4:18. Note the red flag hanging from the bow.
5:31 and some dolphins had just glided by.
6:02, and when the shore crew slipped the line over the bollard, passengers cheered from the upper deck. Thrusters move it laterally, Bahamas bound.
6:12. Notice the tug (Ann Moran?) assisting Brasilia.
6:15. Fantasy in reverse.
6:19. I imagine the lines of the Ravenel Bridge as masts and sails. Well, if I squint, of course.
