I looked at Marine Traffic last night and I saw that I had a chance to catch a few ships today. What I didn't count on was that I was still not quite 100% and that the weather outside was miserable. I was thinking about heading down to Detroit to catch those ships and I looked outside and saw the thick fog. I figured it would be worse on the river and there would be no point, so I ended up staying home. It didn't help that there was rain mixed in. Either way, I ended up watching the Lions and that didn't really help.

We decided to wait for the next ship but it started to snow before that. But I soldiered on and got some pictures of it.
My dad came down and we decided to do some ship watching. First we went to Port Huron where I hoped that we would catch the Lee A. Tregurtha. Unfortunately, she just passed when we arrived there. I didn't want my day to be a bust, so I looked at Marine Traffic and I saw that there was a pair of ships heading up. So we headed down to Marine City where we could catch them.

After I go through taking pictures of the P-8, I saw this plane sitting near by. I thought it looked pretty cool, so I grabbed a picture.
Like I said in my last post, I wanted to get a picture of the plane they used to do the flyover. I didn't see it on the way over to Metro. As I was at Metro, I was thinking that it was in a different spot than I expected, so I looked at the other side of the airport and found it.
After the Michigan-Ohio State game, I decided to head over to Willow Run. I had heard that the plane that did a fly by at Michigan Stadium was there. I didn't see it, so I decided to see what was flying into Metro. There was a pretty good group just before sunset, so I headed over there.

There was one more ship coming up. I was going to catch it a little earlier in the river but I missed her, so I decided to head back to the Blue Water Bridge. Besides, that's a better spot anyway.
