We had gabbed an ice cream and shake at McDonald's yesterday and headed to the overlook to see if there was any river traffic going by. As I turned into the Louisiana Circle, I immediately saw the towboat, Hortense B. Ingram, of Ingram Barge Company, passing by. Was able to zoom in and get a picture from our truck.
As the M/V Hortense B. Ingram passes by I saw another towboat that had already rounded the bend in the MS River at Vicksburg going north.
I did not noticed the other towboat in front of the M/V Hortense B. Ingram when I took the picture above.
It was M/V Bill Elmer passing through Vicksburg with its barge containers.
We hit it just right for the 5:00 O'Clock traffic jam!
This little sparrow was sitting on a wooden barrier at the overlook taking it all in and not worried about anything!
