Sunshine, almost warm and boats, finally

The Algosteel arrived under the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge this  morning (May 4, 2014) around 7 am and went straight over to the North American Salt dock to discharge the season’s first salt cargo. The James R. Barker departed Duluth around 10 in the morning with a cargo of coal for Marquette, Michigan.


  1. Will pack warm clothes if I come visit before the 4th of July, maybe even for the 4th if I get there for it lol, make sure I have a lap blanket for my chair.

    Update: FYI… a side note.
    CCGS Pierre Radisson departed Sault Ste. Marie about half an hour ago (now 0957hrs). Downbound to Quebec.

    Good sign the ice presence is declining although CIS indicates there are still large floes swimming around with thick ice.
