The Presque Isle....Finally

This is a ship that has appeared a couple times before on this blog.  The first time she appeared here, I got a shot of her stern but I wasn't in a good position to get much else of her.  The second time, I chose poorly in where to go, so I got a shot of her as she was going further downriver.  So finally, I got down to the river in time to get a nice series of shots of her.
 After I took the pictures of the Kaministiqua, I wasn't quite sure where the Presque Isle was, so I decided to head over to Hart Plaza.  Plus it would give me a different background for my ships.  Here she is as she is passing Belle Isle.
 From this angle, if you didn't know better, you would say that she is a proper ship and not a barge/tug combination.
 Actually, I think she is a pretty nice looking vessel.  The fact that her bow was built in my hometown adds to my admiration of her.
 Here she is getting a little further downriver.
 Almost passing by the Caesar's Casino in Windsor.
 The part that was built at Defoe Shipyards in Bay City, Michigan.
