M/V Ray S

This boat passed Huntington yesterday, but I almost missed the picture because ... well, check the bottom of this entry.

The M/V Ray S is owned by Enterprise Marine Services of Houma, La. It was built in 2017 and is 96 feet long by 34 feet wide and 10.8 feet deep.

My younger son, Adam, and I were crossing a bridge when I saw the Ray S heading up the river past Huntington. I figured  I could get a good picture at a park in a residential area. That's where boats come fairly close to shore before going around a sharp bent to the right.

As we drove on a residential street near the park, Adam began laughing. He said he just saw a woman pulling weeds while a shirtless guy played the trombone. Only in Huntington, he said. We had to get the picture, so we circled the block. By the time we got back there, they were walking away. The photo op was gone.

When we got to the park, the boat was passing us and I didn't have time to get down to the river  bank, so this was what I could get.

I would rather have gotten a picture of the woman being serenaded by a trombone player as she pulled weeds, but you take what you can get.
