02/26/2010 - Mobile River

Launch: Causeway Boat Ramp (just west of Oysterella's restaurant)

1) Sunny, 55 degrees, and no wind made the conditions perfect for kayaking so I did my favorite industrial loop - Mobile River.

2) A big boat passed by on Mobile River and it produced a wake in the shallows.

3) Tugboat Richard Coen turning into Mobile River from Chickasaw Creek.

4) Another view of the Africatown Cochran Bridge.

5) The Geo Explorer is a seismic ship.

6) The YP 703 is a US Navy training ship recently built locally at C. & G. Boatworks.

7) The sun shines through the RSA Tower.

8) Note the people in this photo to get a perspective on the size of the ship propeller.

9) A bunch of coots were watching a dock being demolished.

10) Some fishermen on the USS Battleship dock with the moon in the background.

  1. i was curious, were you the kayaker who was loading his kayak on a trailer, on the causeway on 2-26, about 4:30 pm just east of the battleship?

    there were also several folks, 4-5 that were at the old banana docks at the same time, don't know whether they were launching or loading to leave.

    love your posts here, always beatiful and quite interesting.

    I know that serveral folks in the dog river area who have seen your posts on the trash, at least some folks are aware of the problem.

    keep the posts coming.
