Catching Up With the Anderson

I decided to take the day off yesterday.  As luck would have it, the Anderson was making her way up the St. Clair River.  So  I decided to go catch her.
The Anderson was returning from Conneaut after she delivered a load of taconite that she offloaded from the wounded Roger Blough.  The Roger Blough struck a reef near Gros Gap and ended up getting grounded.  After lightening with the Clarke, she was able to get off the reef.  The Anderson took the rest of her load. 
 I think she was then on her way to either Calcite or Stoneport where she would pick up a load of stone.  As I type this post, she is on her way to Buffington, Indiana.  That is quite a haul.
 But it was nice to see her.
 She makes her way under the Blue Water Bridge.
 A shot of her pilothouse.
 And deckhouse.
And she continues on her way to Lake Huron.
