So I decided to head back up to Port Huron today. If I had gotten up sooner, I could have caught a couple more ships but this was pretty good considering that one of them was a new ship.
The first ship that I caught was the Algowood. I came pretty close to missing her. I've caught her before, so that wouldn't have been a big loss and if I had just missed her, I could have caught her further down the river.
She departed from Thunder Bay, Ontario at 1:00P.M. on Friday with a load of grain. Thunder Bay is at the northern part of Lake Superior and is almost due north of Isle Royale. I think it is almost the same distance as Duluth.
This picture was taken at almost 1:00 P.M. today which means that it takes two days to get from Thunder Bay to Port Huron. I guess that gives you an idea of just how vast the Great Lakes are.
A closer shot of her. I'm not a huge fan of the rear pilothouse ships but some of them do look nice.
And she continues on past the bridge.
She gives me a nice profile.

The river was a little calmer today, which gave me some better reflections.
And she continues on her way to Baie Comeau which is almost at the end of the St. Lawrence Seaway. I think it will take her another couple of days to get there.
