After the Heidelberg Project, I checked Marine Traffic on my phone and saw that the Kaye Barker would be passing Detroit shortly, so I decided to head down to Milliken State Park to try and catch her.
Just as I was coming up to the River, I saw that she had just rounded Belle Isle. I like Milliken well enough but I think the angles are better from Belle Isle but it's not like I could ask her to reverse.
Unfortunately, some of the better angles are too far out yet, but they will do.
She's still a lovely boat though. There are a couple of spots where I can get an undistracting view of her.
She passed the grain elevator and the distillery.

She gives me the straight out shot.
She was heading to Dearborn today. I was tempted to head down there to catch her coming up the Rouge River but I wasn't sure how long that would take.

A closer shot of her stack. You can see some of the people on her.
She slowly works her way down the Detroit River.
