H. Lee White rides into the sunset

The H. Lee White came into port late Monday afternoon (above) with a cargo of limestone loaded at Calcite, Michigan. After discharging the stone, it will go to Silver Bay to load taconite for Mittal Steel in Indiana Harbor. When it arrived on March 26th this year, it was the first boat in the new season to arrive in the Twin Ports from beyond the Soo Locks. Ice and the problems it creates for ships on the Great Lakes does not follow a schedule. The Coast Guard cutter Biscayne Bay has been called to Thunder Bay and should be departing here after a short ice breaking session in the harbor this morning. Photo taken on December 11,2007
