We are on the Memphis Queen Riverboat in Memphis, Tennessee taking a tour of the Mississippi River. As we paddlewheel up the river and under bridges, this huge tugboat or powered riverboat passes us pushing far too many barges. It is the Loree Eckstein of the Marquette Transportation. I was amazed to see how low in the water the tugboat was and how fast it was moving upriver. Notice all the nice houses that are along the Mississippi River on the Tennessee side with great views.
