The Bristol Bay Passing Detroit

 As I was heading to my spot to boatwatch on Sunday, I saw this guy heading up.

It was the Bristol Bay and I think she removed some buoys from the lower Detroit River.
She was heading to her dock off Nichols Road.  You can see it from Belle Isle.
She was pushing her barge.  The barge is used to carry the buoys.  It also has the crane that is used to remove them.
A sort of close up shot.
One more as she passes.
If temperatures hold up, soon she will be busy helping with ice.
One more shot before moving on.
