Above, the Baie St. Paul made her first entrance  into the Duluth port around 8:30 on Friday night, December 21, 2012.  Below, you don’t suppose the Baie St. Paul is hiding behind her fleet mate Atlantic Erie, do you. Both are at anchor off the Duluth piers, waiting to load iron ore pellets at the CN dock in West Duluth.
