The Joseph L. Block Passing Through the Straits of Mackinac

I made my normal stop at the park at the foot of the Mackinac Bridge.
 As I was taking pictures, I noticed something off to the west.
 It turns out that it was the Joseph L. Block which is a ship that I don't see often enough.  She pretty much sticks to Lake Superior, upper Lake Huron and Lake Michigan.  Although she did make a trip down to Cleveland last year but I couldn't catch her as she went in.
 Which is a shame because she's a pretty nice looking boat.
 Well, at least her paint scheme is.
 I believe she was heading to Port Dolomite and then Duluth.  At Port Dolomite, she would pick up a load of stone.

And she's off.
