2.18- Tugboat in the rain

A tugboat pushes through choppy waters and rain as it passes the Garbacon Shoals marker on the River Neuse

It was a rainy day in the ONC, so I didn't get too adventurous with my photo hunt today.

I saw this tug headed up-river as I cruised past the South Avenue waterfront.

It looks like it is probably a U.S. Government tug, either a military vessel or perhaps Army Corps of Engineers. Hard to tell, since it was about 2.25 miles away, with rain reducing the visibility.

It is passing Neuse River Marker #7, a.k.a. "Garbacon Shoal marker"... The marker in the foreground, with roosting birds, is Whittaker Creek Marker #2.
