Atlantic Huron here, then Nova Scotia

The Atlantic Huron came into port on Friday morning (above) to load coal for Nova Scotia. No US flagged vessels that we see here on any regular basis get out to the Atlantic Ocean and obviously, all the salt water ships we see here do. Some Canadian vessels load cargo here on an irregular basis that they take to Atlantic Ocean ports, as the Atlantic Huron is doing. The name of the ship reflects its dual capabilities of working in the Great Lakes and also the Atlantic Ocean. Today, 2 salt water ships, the Beluga Enterprise and the BBC Plata will be here; the Enterprise bringing wind turbine parts and the Plata loading grain.
