I know a structure when I see one …
Even if it isn’t labeled with a name.

The photo above is the S-65E structure.
It’s the Kissimmee River’s last stop before it heads down into Lake Okeechobee. As you can see, it’s gushing at full capacity due to a heavy deluge earlier in October.
And there is more rain on the way!

When I was there back a few falls ago,
The scene was altogether more placid. The dam doors were closed and the lock was open for business, although while I was there no boats came through.

I almost gave up trying to find the structure. I had to park at a locked gate and walk the final mile. But like a person never forgets a face …
A hydrologist never forgets a structure.
