Saginaw River Passage - December 6th

The tug Laura L. VanEnkevort and her self-unloading barge, Joseph H. Thompson, were forced to stop just above the Lafayette Bridge in Bay City during their outbound trip, as the bridge had a mechanical failure.  The pair had to tread water there for hours while the bridge was repaired.

Alpena was inbound on the Saginaw River, calling on the Lafarge Cement Dock in Essexville to unload.  I took a trip back down to the dock after dark to shoot some night shots as well.
