The first summer Sunday (Updated)

From the look of parking lots at boat ramps today ....

... you would have thought this was Memorial Day weekend.

There were plenty of pleasure boats on the Ohio River today.

The weather is better, the river is down from a week ago and the water is cleaner -- more blue-green than mud brown.

But my favorite view was how waves moved past this buoy.

UPDATE: With the first weekend of summer, accidents are bound to happen.

In Evansville, a woman was found dead in the river after a personal watercraft overturned. Authorities have not said whether the body they recovered was of the woman who is missing.

And here near Huntington, five men were rescued after their boat overturned.
