No river chasing today

Adam and I won't be down at the Ohio River today looking for towboats to chase, for herons, for good angles to shoot oft-shot bridges. No, his older brother -- my older son, Joey -- the one who hates towboats, who gripes when we're driving along and have to stop by the locks to see if there's a good boat passing through, who can't understand why Adam memorizes where various boats were built -- graduates from high school today.

Maybe tomorrow.

Meanwhile, here's one Adam and I got earlier this week. It's the AEP Leader exiting the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam southbound with nine empties and six loads.
