Today I got invited out to eat lunch with some ladies at the Riverwalk Casino and of course had to carry my camera with me hoping to see a towboat or two pass by. I got real lucky...not only were two towboats with barges sitting on the side parked to rest...I was able to get them passing by as we sat near a window.
Could not get the name of this towboat parked.
