I decided that I was going to go boatwatching today. It didn't look like it was going to be a good day until I saw this gem coming up.
The Wilfred Sykes just finished delivering something to Cleveland. I'm not sure what though.
She's still not a usual visitor to this side of the Lakes but it coming here more frequently.
It's always nice to see the Sykes. She is one of the nicer looking boats on the Lakes.
Her owners take really good care of her, so she doesn't have the usually scrapes and rust spots that other ships have.
She typically spends most of her time on Lake Michigan though.
She rarely goes through the Soo Locks, which helps in the wharf rash department.
I'm not sure how often they paint her but it seems like it is more frequent than the other companies.
the bow shot.
She turns to leave the channel.
She has a really nice profile.
I still wish her fleetmate would come out though.
But it's getting less likely that will happen.
But I love this paint scheme.
One more picture with my regular camera.
I switched to my drone.
I think we are going to have to start having air control for these. I know I saw at least two others.
Fortunately, I know what the one typically does, so I tried to stay out of its way.
But then I saw a posting of a picture on facebook and the other drone was close to mine but not close enough to be a danger to either drone.
But I kept with my normal views.
I kind of like this view.
And she continues on her way. She is heading up to Drummond Island where she will pick up stone. I'm not sure what her destination is after that.
