Last week, she was carrying a pair of reporters from the Detroit Free Press. They were writing a story about life on a freighter. They were tied up to the west of the Locks while some dignitaries visited her. I guess that included a Congressman or two. I hope that they were asked why the money for the new lock can't be found. But I digress.
At any rate, it was cool to see the largest ship on the Lakes pass by. I know that I have seen her several times in the past, it is still cool to see her.
She looks very impressive.
We got a pretty nice salute as she passed by.
The Free Press Report was in the back somewhere.
I headed over to Four Mile beach to catch her again. She goes to St. Clair fairly often but it seems like I am either working or sleeping when she passes.
A straight out shot.
And a more straight out shot.
Speaking of which, she was heading back to St Clair to deliver her reporters and coal.
