Tug Potomac “southbound to the harbor and sea.”

I was scouting Turkey Point as a new tugspotting location when a security call broadcast over the VHF radio:  

“Potomac with a barge at Turkey Point southbound to the harbor and sea.”

I started walking up the trail through the deep snow, but after five minutes topped a hill and saw the river was still quite a distance to the east.  I knew that potomac had already passed.  I’ll come back to Turkey Point, next time with snowshoes, a map, and more time.

I turned back down the tail to my car and drove to Kingston Point, where I shot this sequence of photos at approximately 12:30PM
