Canadian Enterprise Christmas

canadianenterprise2007dec25_2876
Christmas Day was a time of waiting for shipping traffic in the Twin Ports. But that is not all bad. In fact, it is pretty good since Christmas Day on a laker means a very nice dinner. That is the Canadian Enterprise above, just to the right of the North Pier light, barely visible in the Christmas morning mist. The overcast did not stop the crew on the boat from enjoying a dinner of turkey and prime rib. Further out in the lake, on the Algolake, prime rib with Yorkshire pudding and chicken Cordon Bleu were the main attraction. Abundant appetizers and desserts surrounded the plate on both boats. At 11 last night, the Walter J. McCarthy Jr. was set to start loading coal at Midwest Energy, there is a waiting line after that. Photo taken on December 25, 2007
