As I left the dock a few days ago, I was amazed to see not one, but two floating train like tows coming down the Intracoastal Waterway. The first was a tug pulling a large dredge and its support materials and the second was another tug pulling the dredge’s pipe. Along with the tugs pulling were smaller push boats helping the lengthy tows around the winding channel.
I have photographed the two shrimp boats that ran aground in Jarvis Creek on Hilton Head Island several times. They could not be salvaged and are now being broken up and hauled away. The Lady Essie was already gone when I made one more trip up the creek to photograph the Dianie. Even with fairly high water, I almost ran aground in this tricky channel, and I only need about two feet to stay afloat. I was however able to get fairly close to the boat. It is a sad sight, the loss of a shrimp boat and the demise of someone’s livelihood.

My study of Fort Pickens Casements began on February 2. I intend to publish this later as a slide show, but right now will just post a single photo until I figure out some new software for slide shows.
The last day I was in New Mexico, I photographed the Rio Grande outside of Mesilla, NM. The River here is not part of the border between the United States and Mexico.
