Saturday evening at Catlettsburg, Ky.


I didn't see the boat I wanted to see. If I had read the map correctly, I would have gone to Ashland, Ky., to see the M/V Capt. Bill Stewart. But I went to Catlettsburg instead. At least I got the closest look I've ever gotten of a Florida Marine Transporters boat that was still under FMT ownership and in its original colors.




I'm sure there will be other times to see the Capt. Bill Stewart.

Sounds of Green Bottom


The Corps of Engineers built the Green  Bottom Wildlife Management Area between Green Bottom and Glenwood, W.Va., when it build the lock canal at the Gallipolis Locks and Dam. It was to make up for the wetlands lost when the locks were built.

Yesterday evening on a photo run from Huntington to Parkersburg and back, I passed by the former Green Bottom swamp. Fog was beginning to roll in from the Ohio River, which is behind the second line of trees. The sounds were pretty good.

Best viewed when wearing headphones.
