Some Shots of Cleveland

The park also provided some decent views of Cleveland itself.  It is situated at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River and part of it was used as a tow path for the canal.
 I have no idea what any of these buildings are but I know the building to the right is a pretty distinctive building in Cleveland.
 Another shot of Downtown Cleveland.
 I'm not sure what the Coast Guard boat was chasing after, but he was booking.
 And the Coast Guard Boat was followed by the Fire Department boat.
 I think they might have been going to rescue someone.
 One of the excusion boats of Cleveland.
 The ship in the back is the DeWert which is an Oliver Hazard Perry class frigate.  She is in the process of cruising the Great Lakes and I think she is going to be in Detroit this week.  The ship in front is the Coast Guard Cutter Katmai Bay, it is normally stationed in Sault Sainte Marie and can be used as an ice breaker.
 This is the Key Tower which is the tallest building in Cleveland (and Ohio).  It is the 18th tallest building in the country.  It was completed in 1991.
 This is the West Pierhead lighthouse.  It was completed in 1911 and was automated in 1965.
 The is the East Pierhead Lighthouse.  It was constructed in 1911.
 The Coast Guard boat heading back to the water.

 Another shot of the DeWert and Katmai Bay.
 This guy painted his boat to look like the Bat Boat.  I guess he took it a little too seriously.
 Another shot of the west pierhead.
 A shot of downtown with the Browns Stadium.
 A tighter shot of Downtown Cleveland.
 The building to the right is 200 Public Square and is the third tallest building in Cleveland.  It was built in 1985.
And a shot of the Terminal Tower.  It was built in 1930 and stood as the tallest building in Cleveland from then until 1991.

One of these days, I'm going to have to go to Cleveland for just an architecture tour.
