One of the things I like about doing this blog is that it gives me an excuse to do things that I wouldn't normally do. If you asked me if I would find myself in Sault Ste Marie in the middle of January, I would have looked at you with a crazy look. But at any rate, this post represents kind of a book end for me.
This year, I found myself at the Soo on the day they opened the locks and now I find myself pretty close to when they are going to close the locks for the season. The official day is January 15th, I think but the shipping season is winding down considerably.
