Block arrives to large crowd

jpsephlblock20070825_2147
All hands were on deck and waving as the Joseph L. Block came into port around 6:30 on Saturday evening (above). The 728 foot freighter brought limestone to the CN dock in West Duluth. When they complete discharging that cargo, they will move next door to the Hallett Dock to begin loading taconite by-product. Then they will go to the Two Harbors CN dock to complete loading taconite, departing Duluth about the same time they came in last night. Photo taken on August 25, 2007.
