The Waterfront Park and Pier has been in my town for about 3 years now. This was my first time going down there. I was not disappointed. We had a view of the underside of the bridge to Charleston.
We had a nice view of the city, the Columbus Street port, and a sailboat---
I love tugboats. I have thought that one of the coolest jobs in the world would be to captain a tugboat since I was a wee little girl.
It was an actual thrill for me to see one in the harbor while at the park.
AND, to top it off, a freighter came along.
It was headed to the port where the husband works so we got to watch it come through the harbor and go around the bend. The tug right along side of it...
These three pelicans came flying by- I was able to get one of them in flight.
And then these guys were gettin' busy under the bridge---rock pigeons, perhaps?
All in all, a nearly perfect day!
