So my last stop of the day was Smith Park in Essexville. If I would have known how to get a spot at the end of the river from the east side, I would have done it but oh well. Maybe next time I get to see a ship moving up the river.
The Independence Bridge was out, so it wouldn't easy to get to a spot at the mouth of the River to get a shot of her leaving. If I knew of a spot on the east side, I would have gone there. At any rate, I thought it was pretty cool to track a ship going up the Saginaw River. It is rare for me to get a ship and when I do, it is normally one of the barge ships that I don't particularly care for. So I was happy to get a picture of a proper ship for a change.
Maybe the traffic on the Saginaw River is increasing and I'll get more chances like this.
