The Presque Isle Makes an Appearance

And so, we were visited by another thousand footer.
 In this case, she was the integrated tug barge, Presque Isle.  She is the only thousand footer that is a tug/barge.
 Admittedly, you couldn't tell that from the front.  She looks like a normal ship from the front and a rather nice one at that.
 I for one welcome our new insect overlords.
 It's not until she gets closer that you notice she is notched for a tug but I'm fine with that.
I think she was headed down to Ohio to deliver iron ore.

There was one ship I was hoping to catch but sadly, she passed by in the middle of the night.
