I didn't think I would be on the island long enough to catch the next ship but as I was heading out, I saw her at the tip of the island. I only took my my big lens with me, so I didn't get great pictures from there.

It's been a while since I've seen the eagle at Belle Isle.
I was pretty sure that I was going to catch the first ship. It was getting dark pretty quickly so I wasn't sure about the second ship. That's one of the things I don't like about winter. Anyway...
And one more shot of her. One thing I find amazing is that the 1000 footers are usually registered to a port that they will never see. In this case, the James R. Barker is registered to Wilmington, Delaware. I know that it's for tax purposes but still, it seems odd.
While I was waiting for my ship to come down, I saw this guy.
And what a different a day can make in the weather. While Saturday was nice and sunny, Sunday was nice and snowy. Fortunately it was warm enough that the snow didn't really stick so I decided I wanted to get some weather shots. I saw that there was at least one ship coming down that I could catch.
I thought I had a chance to catch a thousand footer but I wanted to decrease the time until seeing that ship because I knew that my light was rapidly leaving me. So I headed down to Marine City to catch it. It turns out that the thousand footer was further away than I thought it was, however this guy came around the bend.
