A Day for Tugs

I also enjoy seeing tugs at work in the river. It may be because they are small but so hard-working. Tugs are similar to the children's book, Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel. Mike was able to accomplish much in spite of his small size.

Yesterday I saw two tugs at work. The Avenger IV was pushing the barge PML 9000. This has become a common sight lately.

Later, I saw the tug Missouri guiding the Yucatan up to the Locks approach. I need to always carry my camera for such opportunities.

Also sighted yesterday was
American Valor
Kaye E. Barker
Stewart J. Cort
Herbert C. Jackson
H. Lee White
Mesabi Miner
