The target bridge is in sight on the horizon.
Navigator Rosie is guiding us through the channel.
A stray mullet distracts Rosie temporarily.
Other boats turn out to witness the event. However, with Rex Ross Web Site credentials,
we are able to secure an anchorage much closer in.
The Miss Rosco crew keeps a sharp lookout.
The Galveston County Sheriff's boat asks us where they can safely anchor.
Some other boaters brought the dogs along! Can you believe that?
Tension mounts as H Hour approaches.
Having seen many such explosions before, Rosie prefers to pay attention
to the passing schools of mullet.
