The Lubie

I decided to head up to the St. Clair River today.  It was my plan to catch the John D. Leitch but that never happened.
 As I was passing through Algonac, I saw this ship passing through at the same time.  So I decided to stop at the Algonac State Park to take a picture of her.
 She is the Lubie and is operated by the Polish Steamship Company out of Szczecin, Poland.  Of course her registry is from somewhere else.
 She was built in 2011 and can carry 30,000 tons of cargo.
 She was heading towards Milwaukee and I'm not sure what she is picking up.
 And she slowly works her way past.
 Even though I like the traditional lakers more, the salties give a nice variety of color.
One more shot of her before she moves up the St. Clair River.
