A Surprise Visitor

 So I decided to head down to Belle Isle to catch a ship.  As I was taking pictures of that ship, I heard the rumble of a diesel engine behind me.  Since I was switching to my drone anyway, I turned the drone to catch it.

Turns out that the rumble was caused by the tug Dorothy Ann.  She was pushing her barge, the Pathfinder.
I wasn't expecting to see this one.  Since I was looking for upbound ships, plus the tugs have different colors on Marine Traffic, so I didn't notice that this one was coming down.
I was able to get a shot of the tug/barge passing the ship I was coming down for.
One more shot of her.  She was heading down to Toledo.
