mv AEP Mariner at RCB

On the way to grandma's house to spend a few days of spring break, Adam, Joey and I swung by the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam to see if any boats were around. I saw one in the distance. I guessed it was a Crounse boat of the sort that I have dozens of photos of, but Adam knew differently. He recognized the pilothouse as belonging to one of his favorite boats, the mv. AEP Mariner.

So while Joey stayed in the car (he's not a boat fan), Adam and I went down closer to the river.

Adam got out the field glasses he keeps in the car for such occasions.>

We saw the boat approach the lock ...

... enter the lock ....

... leave the lock ...

... and head downriver.
