After I left the Farmer's Market yesterday morning, I decided to drive by the Louisiana Circle on my way home. As I turned into the circle I saw this big towboat making a turn in the bend of the MS River at Vicksburg.
I was able to get this picture of another towboat out my truck window. It was moving pretty fast going south.
I got out of my truck and noticed that the big towboat had made it's turn and was following behind another towboat pushing containers.
I never could get a name on this M/V but it did have the name Blanco on the back end of it.

Almost under the bridges now.
I turned back towards the bend in the river and it looks like the big towboat was trying to play catch-up!
