Gone from Point Pleasant

Adam and I were crossing the Silver Memorial Bridge yesterday from Ohio into West Virginia. As usual, Adam looked down the river to see what boats were at the Campbell Transportation dock. Not did he see no boats, but he didn't see the dock, either.

From what I've heard since, Campbell has decided to pull its operations out of Point Pleasant. The dock was where we got several good views of Campbell boats, and it's where two or three times a year I used to see one of the prettiest boats on the river -- the Amber Britany.

But things come and go. The Campbell dock at Point Pleasant was where G&C Towing was based. The company was owned and operated by a guy named Bosworth who died a few years ago. Campbell took things over, but it's apparently over now.
