Port Sunset

Colin is obsessed with the Port of Charleston. I don’t say that lightly. He even wanted to have his birthday party there! Colin is 6 and talks like a true authority on all things related to the port. On our way to school each morning we take the 526 bridge over the Wando River. While I enjoy looking at the beautiful scenery and boats, Colin observes what’s happening at the port. Our conversations often go like this:

“Look Mom!! A Maersk and a MOL are there today” or “I wonder why MSC has two cargo ships at port?”

The boy knows how many cranes there are at the Wando terminal, how many ships pass through on a given day, that MSC stands for “Mediterranean Shipping Company”, how many crew members are on a cargo ship during a transatlantic voyage, and that the Emma Maersk is the largest cargo ship ever.

So needless to say, this photo will soon be printed and framed in his room! Chad took Davis to the river to watch dolphins and captured this fabulous photo on his iPhone.

I think it’s pretty cool that little boys love stuff like this. I learn something new every day being in a family of boys and it brings me so much joy. Who ever thought that I would find a port sunset photo beautiful? Well, I certainly do when I can see it through the eyes of my beloved son. 🙂
