It's not often that I get to catch ships as they are on the same trip but it's cool when I do because I can use it to give an idea of just how vast the Great Lakes Seaway is.

A Stop at Windmill Point
I was thinking about going planewatching tonight but the winds weren't coming from the right direction and I didn't feel like using the parking structure again. Then I decided to check AIS to see if there was anything heading on the river and I discovered that there was a downbound ship that I had a chance to catch.

Twilight at the Aluminum Aviary
I decided to stop at Metro Airport on the way home. Earlier today, I saw that there would be a 747 flight coming in from Orlando.

Catching Up With the Callaway
I was at our Troy office today and I saw that there was a ship heading downbound. After getting my work done, I decided to head up to Marysville because that's where I had a chance of catching her.

Oakland at Eastern Michigan Baseball
As I was leaving work today, I found out that Oakland University was playing Eastern Michigan at Oestrike Stadium. After grabbing dinner, I decided to head over there for what was the last out.

A Brief Bit of Lunch Planewatching
As I got back to the office after lunch, I saw that there were a couple of Cessnas flying around. I decided to get a couple of pictures of them.

Ships at Rest Again...
After Marblehead, I decided to head over to Huron, Ohio to catch the ships in layup there. Again, I think the weather makes for some nice ship pictures.
