Algocape greeted by sun and visitors

The Algocape picked a nice sunny day at the end of May to make its first appearance in the Twin Ports this season. She was welcomed by perhaps the largest crowd so far this year at the Marine Museum in Canal Park. This is the Canadian flagged laker’s 69th trip to the Twin Ports since 1996. On many of those visits, it brought cement into the port but on this trip, it came in light and loaded iron ore pellets at the CN dock in West Duluth. Photo taken on May 30, 2009
