The Joseph L. Block went under the Lift Bridge on Friday afternoon, on its way to Two Harbors to load iron ore pellets. At the same time, Shannon Curfman was in the middle of her set at the Bayfront Blues Festival (above). Both the Blues and the boats continue today, most of the boats will be here for coal; 4 thousand footers, all loading coal, will come under the Lift Bridge to back up the Blues at Bayfront.
