Canadian Enterprise, lighthouse, bridge

Day one of the Aerial Bridge check up has completed. Two boats made it under the bridge before it closed to ship traffic yesterday. The Paul R. Tregurtha departed at 6:20 in the morning and the American Spirit came in at 6:35. The Duluth entry should see only two boats today, both coming after the bridge inspection is completed. The Great Lakes Trader and the Joseph L. Block should both be arriving around dinner time today. Only one normal Duluth customer should be departing Superior: that would be the Canadian Enterprise. It almost always loads coal here but today it will load grain. Above, it is coming in under the Lift Bridge in January, 2003. The Beluga Elegance was here in late August with wind turbine parts but will be back today to also load grain.
