the Kentucky

Today Adam and I got to see the new Marathon Petroleum Co. towboat Kentucky actually moving on the Ohio River. The other times we've seen it, it's been tied to shore off in the distance. But today we got to se it close up.

Here the Kentucky is seen from a small picnic shelter at the upper end of Pomeroy, Ohio.

Here it's about to pass under the Bridge of Honor between Pomeroy, Ohio, and Mason, W.Va. In the lower right corner is one of the lights that turns the bridge purple at night.

And here's a closer look at the boat.

As seen from Tu-Endie-Wei Park in Point Pleasant, W.Va., with Kanauga, Ohio, in the background. Here the boat is at the spot where the Silver Bridge once stood.

Exiting the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam.

And heading down the Ohio River toward its home dock at Catlettsburg, Ky,
