McCarthy Jr. enters harbor under Aerial Lift Bridge

The season’s last salt water ship, the Beluga Revolution, departed the port on Friday evening. That means no more wind turbines or grain. Coal and iron ore pellets will make up most of the cargo that will be departing the port for the rest of the season, which will probably continue until January 20th or so. The Walter J. McCarthy, Jr. will be here today to load coal at Midwest Energy Resources. Above, it is seen coming into port in May of this year. Photo taken on May 23, 2008
