Thankgiving, and snowfall on the Delaware, and what it brings–with 9000 hp and San Francisco on its stern–

Pilot!  It’s a Crowley’s tug on

La Princesa, the triple-deck 580′ loa barge that runs between Pennsauken, NJ and San Juan, PR.

Just over a year ago, I saw fotos of La Princesa push ashore by the storm named Ida near Virginia Beach, VA, and I read it was big, but here Grace Moran and

Valentine Moran show just how

huge the barge is.  See it in the St. John’s River, FL here.

3 pm Thursday they headed upriver under the Ben Franklin Bridge, and

as of noon today, they were still docked at Pennsauken, and I had to move on.  More La Princesa fotos here.    More Delaware River first snow fotos soon.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp.
