Largest port (by tonnage) on the Great Lakes!

 

There is a reason why I am so tired at the end of the day. I have to keep getting up from my chair to take pictures of all the ship traffic. There was quite a parade this morning. Above, the Algowood was on her way out with a load of iron ore pellets and passed the CSL Tadoussac coming in to replace her at the CN Dock in West Duluth.
A couple minutes later, the James R. Barker was departing with a load of coal from Midwest Energy Resources in Superior. She was taking that to Taconite Harbor and passed the Victoriaborg coming in to load bentonite at the Hallett Dock in Duluth. As the Victoriaborg made her turn to the St. Louis River, she passed the Canadian Enterprise, loading fuel at the Murphy Fuel Dock before taking a load of salt to the Hallett 8 Dock in Superior. After that, she will go to the BNSF dock in Superior to load taconite pellets and maybe then, I can get some rest.
