Icy Buffalo

The Buffalo will be here today. It is a well traveled boat, stopping at these Great Lakes ports this season before finally getting to Duluth on December 21st: Toledo, Harbor Beacon, Port Gypsum, Lorain, Zug Island, Waukegan, South Chicago, Stoneport, River Rouge, Calcite, Muskegon, Alpena, Green Bay, Sandusky, Ludington, St. Joseph, Fairport, Holland, Milwaukee, Manistee, Port Dolomite, Bay City, Conneaut, Burns Harbor, Ashtabula, Windsor, Erie, Saginaw, Cleveland, Nanticoke, Charlevoix, Marblehead, Escanaba, Harbor Beacon, Ferysburg, Benton Harbor, Silver Bay and finally Duluth. They must like Duluth since they are back today. (If you don’t know what state or province these cities are in, it is probably Michigan.)
