A Misty Morning with the Alpena
So I decided to head down to Belle Isle to catch the Alpena. I knew it was going to be pretty tight catching her though.
However I did manage to catch her. I kind of like the view where I get her on Lake St. Clair. Not sure if you can tell from this picture but it was a little misty.
With the conversion of the St. Marys Challenger into a tug/barge, the Alpena is now the oldest self powered freighter on the lakes.
Given that she serves a pretty valuable role, I don't think she's going to be converted to a tug/barge any time soon.
Well at least I hope not. She's too pretty of a ship to suffer that fate.
Besides, based on her appearance, I think she has quite a few years in her.
It's amazing to think that she is a 70 plus year old boat.
But she still soldiers on.
A profile shot.
Slowly she heads towards the Detroit Cement place.
One more shot....
Profile shot is nice
