Yesterday, we drove to the Louisiana Circle to see if any barges were going up or down the river. As we turned in we saw one going up in the bend of the river. While glancing across the river on the Louisiana side we saw a bunch of tents and people on the sandbar camping out. Sure looks like a fun way to spend a Labor Day weekend! Here are some pictures I took of the surrounding area...even got the birds in on it!
Birds taking a safe place at the Louisiana Circle with the Riverfront Park below near the MS River.
Another barge coming up the MS River.
It's towboat, Francis Benedict pushing the barges.
I would certainly call this a birds eye view!
