Mike and Marnie from Thunder Bay

Mike Wolowich and his daughter Marnie came down from Thunder Bay to watch the ships come under the Lift Bridge, a trip he has made for many years; Marnie has many  memories  of great family trips to Duluth to see the ships but those trips don’t go back nearly so far as Mike’s. We took pictures of each other while we took pictures of the Adam E. Cornelius coming in. Click pic for large version.

Denny Dushane sent me these two pictures he took of the Algoma Mariner yesterday (August 19, 2011) while she was passing through Port Huron, Michigan on her way to Duluth. Click here to go to the Duluth Shipping News page on the Algoma Mariner. I am still adding information to it; the story behind this boat is as interesting as any I have run across. If you have more information, corrections or additions, please add a comment on the page or send me an email.
