Ships Passing on a Rainy Day

Good morning,

On a rainy afternoon while aboard Freedom of the Seas tied up in St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. I looked out of our stateroom and saw another ship passing. 
This ship felt so close I could almost reach out and shake hands with the people standing over there waving to us over here.
 The other ship was backing out of its "parking space" just ahead of our ship.  It's amazing how these big ships can move in and out of what appear to be tight spaces.  They have the advantage of bow thrusters that allow them to move sideways.  Wouldn't that be fun to have on our cars to make parking easier.  ;)
 Now with the camera focused on the water on my window, the other ship looks even closer, but it was never too close for safety.

Even rainy days can be just a much fun for capturing images as the sunny days.

One wonders why we can't have cars that do that
