A few days back, I was surprised by an *enormous* barge that suddenly appeared one morning.
No way this was fitting under the bridge, especially with a tall pilot house. Yet…the alarm didn’t sound, and the bridge didn’t open.
Certain disaster, and I was there with my camera ready to record it for CNN / BBC.
But, watch closely, the pilot house retracted as it approached the bridge, lowering into the boat to pass beneath the bridge, then popping up on the far side.
I love the ingenuity of mariners. Especially when things go completely wrong…
