Our tugboat at sea

This morning, while dog walking our permanent guest, we saw ( our lovely bully and I) a tanker on tow entering the Bay in Brest.

The tanker flying The Man flag on its way to Spain from The Netherlands ( probably Rotterdam) has on board 2500 tonnes of crude oil and its engine couldn’t make it during the night. It’s fortunate our sea guardian angel ” The tugboat Abeille Bourbon” was sent by The Maritime Prefect for the Atlantic Ocean to rescue the drifting tanker. Brittany has suffered enough from oil spills in the past: The Amoco Cadiz spill wasn’t the only one, far from it.
