Outbound in the Houston Ship Channel

Timelapse video of an itty-bitty tanker on its way out to sea. It’s a gorgeous trip.

0:40 – 610 Bridge
0:54 – Lyondell Turning Basin
1:10 – Crown Bend
1:44 – Jesse Jones Bridge (aka Beltway 8 bridge, aka 2 dollar bridge)
2:13 – Battleship Texas (on the right, mostly unlit)
2:17 – Lynchburg Ferry Crossing
2:20 – Peggy’s Lake
2:37 – Baytown
2:46 – Fred Hartman Bridge
2:58 – Morgan’s Point
From then on it’s Galveston Bay.

This is a Panamax tanker–that is, the largest tanker that can make it through the Panama canal.
