Late afternoon at Greenup

We were on an expedition looking for school buses. We had a little time, so we stopped at the public use area at the Greenup Locks and Dam and ...

One or two family reunions had broken up as people noticed it was almost half past 6. They said good-bye all the way to their cars and trucks.

While I was there, I had to get a shot of the Galveston Bay exiting the main lock upbound.

And if you were wondering, we did find some school buses.

It was a good evening.

Backup at Gallipolis, er, Robert C. Byrd

Yesterday I noticed that two tug-and-two combinations headed for Monaca were tied off to the West Virginia bank because of a backup at the Gallipolis Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam, so in the evening I drove up hoping to get some photos without having to trespass on private property. These are what I got.

First, the Tristen and the Brittany Lynn. There often are utility lines in the way of good river photos, it seems.

And the Lady Loren and the Stephen L.

The Kentucky was in line to go up. I assume it was sitting here while helping another boat with its double cuts.

All five boats got through overnight, so they're headed toward Racine as of this writing.
