One day, lots of boats

Here are some photos Adam and I got the other day. There are a lot of them, so words will be at a minimum.

The M/V Tennessee at 311 fleet. That's the Darrell L in the background. I don't know the name of the boat assisting the Tennessee.

The Robin B. Ingram. It looks almost identical to the R. Clayton McWhorter, but Adam says the McWhorter is a lot nicer looking.

The Robin B. Ingram passing the M/V New Dawn, which is over at the McGinnis dock waiting for something.

Derrick Float 545. What happened to numbers 1 through 544 I have no idea.

The Darrell L downbound.

The Merdie Boggs delivery boat overtaking the M/V Bob Koch.

The New Dawn. This might be the first time I've shot a Viking from the front when it had no barges.

The M/V Prairie Dawn arrives as a hole in the clouds opens, allowing the sun to come through.

The M/V Claudia Harold

The Mark S as seen sideways.

The Bridget Caulley

The Bridget Caulley closest, with the Prairie Dawn behind it and the New Dawn in the distance.

So I like barges.

The M/V Earl Franklin

I don't know who this fellow on the Caulley is talking to.

Making a delivery.

Two days and counting

One of the best days of the year as far as Adam is concerned comes Friday. It's the first day of the Tribute to the River at Point Pleasant, W.Va., meaning there should be one or more towboats having an open house. It's a good thing I'm taking the day off and Adam's school lets out early. If all goes well, we'll be there around 2:30 to talk to whatever river people we can find.
