Buffalo arrives on a beautiful Duluth day

People in buggies and bikes were down at the ship canal on Friday to watch the boats come under the bridge. Commercial shipping had the bridge back while the 3 tall ships were at the DECC. The Buffalo came in late in the afternoon (above) to pick up a load of coal for Silver Bay. There are 3 salt water ships in port to start the new month off. The Daniella is discharging equipment for oil sands projects in Alberta, the BBC Maine is here waiting to discharge wind turbine pieces and the Marneborg is here, or departed early this morning, with beet pulp pellets.
