Next up is one of the ships that brought me to Belle Isle. The other was the Herbert C. Jackson but she had already passed Belle Isle by the time I got down there and I couldn't get to Milliken because of a 5K run. Oh well, some other time, I guess.
It always nice to catch Lee A. Tregurtha though. She is nice looking ship and certainly a unique looking one.
The light was shining just right for her as she passed Windmill Point. I really liked the color in the background.
She loaded iron ore in Marquette, Michigan and is taking to the Rouge Steel Plant in Dearborn. As I type this post, she has left the Rouge Dock and is heading to Silver Bay, Minnesota. I'm pretty sure she picks up iron ore ther too.
A shot of her bow. She has a fairly unique look amongst the lakers because she's been converted from an ocean going vessel.
But that's fine, because it gives her nice silouette.
