After having lunch with a girlfriend at Ameristar Casino today, I went by the Navy Circle to see if I could catch a towboat on the MS River. As I made it to the top of the circle I saw a small supply boat making it's way towards the bridges. It's a pretty hot summer day in my hometown of Vicksburg and you could feel the heat! Below are several pictures I took before I left for home.

Looks like the supply boat slowed down some.
