This large container ship just sailed in front of my hotel window, towing a tug boat, or so it appeared. But why?

We are in Dobh, Ireland where the final boarding of passengers were taken aboard the Titanic. A lot of history in the waters of this Harbour in front of our hotel.

Hi Grandpa,
The tug is the container ship's Brakes!
Otherwise it would need a few miles to come to a stop!
Cheers Doug
Don't forget Blarney Castle and the (in)famous Stone while you're down there.
Lovely countryside 👍

Young at heart - slightly older in other places 😉 Cheers Doug
