Took this picture through a big window in the Lower Mississippi River Museum.
The Kitchen. Did not think to take pictures of the living quarters and dinning area.
Making my way to the stern of the boat.
A huge spotlight.
Stern of the boat.
This is Rusty's Riverfront Grill across from the boat on our main street at 901 Washington Street. Not everyday you see a huge boat dry-docked near your place of business. Rusty's is a very popular place to go and eat in town. You can check out or visit his site at: www.rustyriverfront.com. Rusty's at one time was just a few blocks south and down a hill in a log-styled cabin restaurant that later caught fire and burned down. He relocated here and gradually fixed it up. He is now in one of the hottest spots in town!
Landscaping still in progress in the parking lot.
Work also continues on the spiral staircase roof.
A barge coming down the Yazoo Diversion Canal headed to the Port Of Vicksburg which is very low.
A pilot on a Synergy towboat hoping not to meet anyone headed out.
The LMRM also features a model of the main Mississippi River channel. Built by the Corps of Engineers Engineering and Research Development Center, ERDC, the model displays 80 miles of curves and bends from just south of Greenville, Mississippi to Vicksburg, Mississippi. Visitors can walk along and even in the channel, learning about how the river and mainline levee system interact.
