They really sometimes are invisible to us as they move through our cities and along our rivers. I saw the news about the towboat sinking this week, and as I read about it, I found stories of other recent sinkings, collisions and allusions (your vocab word for today) that didn’t make the news. There was even a towboat that sank on my birthday…now how wild is that!

If you are interested in knowing more about towboats, one really good resource is, at site that covers boats of all types and what they are doing. Their blog has lots of news, interesting stories to tell, and if you are really hooked, their twice-weekly newsletter will give even more. If you are a writer or storyteller, you’ll find lots of ideas here!
