I thought that there was going to be a ton of river traffic today. But it turns out that most of it had passed by the time I woke up. That left me with one ship to catch.
I took my sweet time waking up this morning, so that meant I would miss it as it was coming off Lake St. Clair. I was then thinking I'd catch her at Milliken State Park.
That didn't happen because I decided to catch the Queen first. So it was off to Del Ray that I went.
When I arrived at the park, there were a ton of people with boats there. I wasn't sure if they were part of a tournament or it was the first nice Saturday in a while. Anyway, I was able to get a parking spot. The area where people fished wasn't too busy.
I was able to get some shots of the Thunder Bay between the fishing poles.
You can see her passing a couple of fishing boats here. These boats weren't a problem but shortly after this picture was taking, I heard her horn going off like crazy.
When you hear five shorts from a ship, it means get out of the way. I guess I wouldn't argue with a ship.
