The weekend of Thunder Over Michigan is almost here.
I decided to take tomorrow off. I'm not sure what I'm going to do but if I'm still in town, I might try to catch the Blue Angels while they practice.

A little bit further down the road were some sunflowers.
So the last ship from Sunday is another one belonging to Canada Steamship Lines.
On the other side of the island there were some boat races going on. I think it is the Gold Cup Races but I'm not 100% sure.
It is no secret that I'm a lover of the classic laker. The classic laker is a ship that is unique to the Great Lakes (I think).
So I decided to go out boatwatching on Sunday. There was another ship that I feel like is living on borrowed time.
I also went back to Belle Isle on Sunday. In between shots of the ships on Saturday and Sunday, I decided to get some shots of the Livingstone Lighthouse.
The next ship was following fairly closely behind the Frontenac, so I decided to stick around to catch her.
With the Algorail in layup and likely to be scrapped at the end of the season, the Algoway making runs and probably destined for the scrap heap, the Algosteel making runs and probably destined for the scrap heap, and the CSL Tadoussac in layup. There is likely only going to be two classic Canadian Lakers left. There is the John Leitch and I'm pretty positive she has a couple years left anyway. While she is not a classic laker, she is configured like one.
