I was able to get down to the Ohio River for a few minutes this morning. I saw some birds, but not in a good spot for a picture. I saw an AEP boat in the distance, but I didn't have time to wait for it.
As I was leaving work in Charleston, I did see a boat that turned out to be the Escatawpa, so I got my first towboat photo from up on the South Side Bridge over the Kanawha River. I look forward to getting a few more from there in better light.
And yes, the boat is pushing the barges on the port side rather than from the center.
