Wow, I hope that thing stops…

The Atlantic Huron is pictured making the turn into the Duluth harbor after coming in from the anchorage off the Duluth piers on Saturday afternoon to replace the Walter J. McCarthy Jr. at the Midwest Energy coal dock. People were turning their attention from the boat to the bridge, standing under it and watching it slowly come down on their head. There were a few more people under the bridge on Saturday since it started to rain as the Atlantic Huron arrived. As usual, the bridge stopped before hitting anybody. Early this morning, the ship was expected to depart with its cargo of coal, taking it to Nova Scotia Power in Sydney, Nova Scotia, a port on the Atlantic Ocean. Photo taken on July 25, 2009
