As you know, the Roger Blough is by far my favorite ship. She probably has the most appearances of any ship on this blog. I was hoping to catch her on the way down but she appeared too late for me to get decent pictures. When I saw that she was coming back up yesterday, I decided to go out and catch her. I believe this was her first trip to Ohio this season.
A shot of her pilothouse.
A closer shot of her bow. She's had a rough opening to her season. I believe her hull was pierced somewhere but I couldn't tell exactly where.
A shot of her deckhouse.
She starts to work her way from Marine City.
I caught her next at St Clair. It was my plan to follow her all the way up the river.
The beam shot.
And a shot of her stern as she continues to head up the river. By all appearances, she was booking.
Next I caught her at Marysville but I was almost too late because I was sticking around for another ship.
Another shot of her deckhouse.
And a shot of her stack.
The rear of her pilothouse.
The shot as she was pulling away.
Then I went to another favorite spot.

So then I grabbed my spot near the Blue Water Bridge.
