I was hoping to catch the Alpena and CSL Tadoussac on Wednesday. The Alpena arrived in the middle of the night and I don't think Del Ray is open. The CSL Tadoussac is waiting in Lake Erie to enter the Rouge River. I'm not sure why she is waiting down there but it makes it difficult to catch. So I ended up heading up to Fish Point. I was hoping that I would see some snowy owls as people are still seeing them up there. Barring that, some other birds.

The next ship was one of the oddities on the Great Lakes.
I was hoping to catch the Alpena yesterday but she wasn't cooperating with me on a time. I was also hoping to catch the CSL Tadoussac but she also wasn't cooperating with me. I saw that there were two ships that would be passing the St. Clair River at roughly the same time, so I decided to go catch them.

As I said in the last post, there is a nice sheet of ice over Whitefish Bay. I think I read somewhere that it is 12 feet thick. It is causing some trouble for the ships that are trying to start the season.
