M/V Linda Reed, another view

M/V Canton coming out of the Big Sandy

It didn't take long for the M/V Canton to go up the Big Sandy River, drop its barge and come back out to the wider, more civilized (?) river. As I was about to leave Virginia Point Park at Kenova and head home ...

You would think people at the youth  soccer matches would drop everything and get a good look at a towboat passing by.

But considering how often Marathon boats go in and out of the Big Sandy, it's probably not a big deal.

And finally, the Canton is almost to the mouth of the Big Sandy, with beautiful downtown Catlettsburg, Ky., in the background.
