M/V Speedway coming down the Kanawha

I could have gotten a nice photo of the M/V Speedway this morning, but I didn't have my good camera with me, so we'll have to settle for this one taken with my low-end phone.

This is on the Kanawha River. I saw the boat as I was leaving the Capitol, so I went down the boulevard, parked at the first good spot and got off a few shots.

That's the University of Charleston in the background.  The school's president is Dr.  Edwin H. Welch, for whom an Amherst Madison boat -- one of the old Hillman boats -- in named.
