CSL Niagara passes South Pier Light

The Canadian flagged CSL Niagara, seen above entering the Duluth ship canal on January 9th, 2005, is expected to arrive late this evening, perhaps just before midnight. Last year, when the boat was here in late December, it was elaborately decorated for Christmas. It may light up the harbor just in time for the New Year! Even if there are no Christmas lights on the boat, it is bright red. This is the 5th trip the boat has made to the Twin Ports this season. That’s about average over the last 5 years.
