Vlieborg, Anderson pass in the Duluth harbor

 2016-0531-6687
The Vlieborg (above) arrived this morning (May 31, 2016) at 6:25 as the Arthur M. Anderson was departing, passing each other in the Duluth harbor. This is the second visit of this version of the Vlieborg; she was also here in November, 2012 (the year she was built) to load beet pulp pellets.  Notice the ladder hanging down from the deck of the Vlieborg and also her direction, as if she, like the Anderson, is departing. The Vlieborg is in the harbor for inspection by local grain officials and other port personnel. When that is complete, she may go out to the anchorage, stay where she is or go over to CHS to load grain. Today’s weather, cold, with high winds and rain, may keep her there; going out to the anchorage in this wind may not be the Captain’s first choice, and grain is not loaded when it is raining. This was the 6th visit to the Twin Ports for the Anderson this season. She loaded iron ore pellets at the CN.
