It's been a while since I've been boatwatching on the Detroit River, so I've been itching to go down there. Just before I left work, I checked the AIS site and saw that the Lee Tregurtha would be hitting Belle Isle around the time I would be down there. I might possibly also see the Mesabi Miner. As it turned out, I missed the Mesabi Miner by probably about 15-20 minutes. However, Lee Tregurtha was rounding the tip of Belle Isle. So I was a happy camper.past. In fact, I even got to see her at the Soo Locks on Opening Day. Given her history and unique look, I'd have to say that she is definately one of my favorites.
