Geeze, I've been using ships as metaphors for many things this week. So I guess I will use them for one more metaphor. In many respects, ships are like the people that build them. They need nourishment in order to move and do their thing. They can get hurt and need repairs. They also need rest in order to catch up with the minor things that happen over a shipping season.
Anyway, as I was heading out of Toledo, I remembered a spot that I took some ship pictures from a couple years ago, so I headed that way. It is not the the greatest spot but was better than the CSX docks. The ship pictured above is the H. Lee White and is owned by the American Steampship Company. I've posted her history before, so I wont do it here.
It was nice to get some ship pictures but I am waiting with baited breathe for the shipping season to open up. I'd rather have pictures in action.
