...and said, "hey - that might be interesting!" In all my years here, I've never seen it. I don't know what I expected. Maybe a river full of barges? Well, I drove in and headed toward the water but it is most definately a busy, industrial area, bustling with a lot of heavy equipment. I got a little spooked, turned around and went back to the visitor center. The nice, but very bored, man there told me where I could go to take some pix as long as I stayed in the car.
Having limited access made it a little less interesting to photograph, but that's ok. I snapped a few and scooted out of there, dodging the racing semi's going both directions. However, the port really is a big deal and if you'd like to know more, click here.
Back to the visitor center where I breathed a sigh of relief. There's a small museum with pictures and articles telling the history of the port; a pretty gazebo, stone waterfall & flower beds. And a retired tugboat!
They must let children's groups go thru the boat, but on this day the upper deck was roped off.
And that's about it for the port. But with a little imagination, you can find something artsy or interesting to shoot just about anywhere.
End of mini-adventure. Back to the office tomorrow!
