Isadora coming in from anchor

Only two boats should be going under the Lift Bridge today, both probably doing it tonight. The Polish flagged Isadora is expected to depart for Italy with a cargo of wheat and the American Mariner will be here to load taconite at the CN dock in West Duluth. That cargo will go to Indiana Harbor. Above, the Isadora is turning into the ship canal on Thursday afternoon after a short stay in the outer anchorage off the Duluth piers. That explains the odd angle; it was coming from its position at anchor and not straight in from the Lake.
