After taking pictures of the Chessie, I decided to get some pictures of some of die cast models. Most of these are 1/400 scale.

Yesterday I didn't do anything because of the threat of snow and today, I didn't do anything because of actual snow. Well, I take that back. I was going to go catch the Wolverine. I went down to Depot Town and as I saw the updates for the train getting later and later, I decided to head home. That was a shame because the sun was coming out and the snow was powdery. It would have made for a cool picture, I think. I was content to not take any pictures but then I saw Chessie laying on my bed.

This has been a picture I've been meaning to get for a while. I kind of like the view of downtown Detroit when you are coming in from Fort Street.
This ship is the one that I was hoping to catch.
As I was photographing the next ship, I saw these guys go by. I of course had to get a picture of one of them.
I think this is a bufflehead duck. But I'm not sure. It looks pretty neat at any rate.
There was one more ship at the docks near the grain elevator.
There was another ship that was at the grain elevator. I also think she was resting although she may have gotten there recently.
I went to Belanger Park because I saw that a ship I was interested in catching would be passing. While I was waiting for that ship, I saw that there were a couple ships at rest at the grain elevator.
First up was the Florence Spirit. I'm not sure if she was offloading or she was waiting out the winter there. Either way, she's a nice looking ship and I was happy to see her.
So last weekend I decided to head up to see if I could catch a snowy owl. I went to my normal spot where I could catch them. As I was about ready to give up, I looked at one of the telephone poles and saw one.

We lost our power Sunday morning. I was kind of waffling about going out but that kind of settled the matter. I decided to head to the airport first before going off to my next destination.
