|Holly took this picture of the CSL Niagara at 8:17 on Thursday morning, September 8, 2016.|
|The Algoma Montrealais arrived Duluth early this morning to discharge a cargo of cement at the Holcim dock in Duluth. Holly Jorgenson took the picture above while the freighter was at the cement dock; she also took the picture of the Isadora below while the boat was loading grain at the CHS 2 dock in Superior. This is the 18th visit the Polish owned Isadora has made to Duluth since she was built in 1999. This is the 82nd visit for the Montrealais since 1996; she of course made many more here from when she was built in 1962 to 1996; I just wasn’t here for them.|
|My friend Julie Fletcher, the 2nd cook on the Rt. Hon. Paul J. Martin, took pictures of us as they came in through the Duluth ship canal on June 2, 2014. But I got pictures of her taking pictures of us with her odd looking camera. It is hard to take a picture of someone and wave at them at the same time. (I had told a bunch of folks waiting on the pier for the boat that my friend Julie would be waving, and suggested they wave back while yelling out her name. They did, and several minutes later, when she sent me her pictures, she added this line, “The guys were laughing , i told them that’s my fan club yelling my name”
Later in the day, actually, very early the next morning, my friendly associate Holly and I paid a visit to Tim Dayton, captain on the Paul R. Tregurtha. Holly, under the watchful eye of Captain Dayton, is at the wheel here, but we were tied up at the Port Terminal getting fuel so no one was injured.
Holly Jorgenson took this picture on Sunday, November 4, 2012 while the Tecumseh was rounding the corner and about to dock at CHS 2 in Superior.
|Note: Holly’s most recent pictures will appear at the top of this post so start at the bottom of this post if you are one of those people who like to see things in order.|
|I am getting exhausted posting all these pictures here while Holly is at the Soo, probably sitting on a nice chair with her camera on her lap while she waits for boats to pass by her chair. You have to look a little closer to see the Presque Isle moving upbound on her way to Two Harbors to load iron ore pellets. The Soo Locks allow vessel traffic to overcome the 21 foot difference between water levels on Lake Superior and those on Lakes Huron, Michigan and Erie so upbound, a vessel is starting at the lower level and moving up 21 feet. I presume we are looking at the beginning of her vertical journey through the locks.|
|Next, she caught the Roger Blough downbound in the Poe Lock for Gary Indiana with iron ore pellets she loaded in Two Harbors.|
|Then she caught up with the Flevoborg upbound through the MacArthur lock to Duluth to load grain. (September 10, 2012, about 1pm)|
|After a stop in Marquette, the Holly Great Lakes Express stopped at the Soo in time to catch the Algoma Olympic moving downbound through the MacArthur lock.|
|Holly Jorgenson took some time out from being a Great Grandmother to get this picture of the American Courage as she came into port on Thursday morning, August 30, 2012 at 9:00. It was her 3rd trip to the Duluth Superior this season (the boat’s third, not the Grandmother’s), the first two were in July. She (the boat, not the Grandmother) brought limestone to discharge at the Graymont dock in Superior. After that, she (see above) moved to the CN dock in West Duluth to load iron ore pellets for Cleveland. She was initially named after Fred R. White, a man who started as an accountant in the vessel operations department of Columbia Transportation Company in 1935. He held many leadership positions with the company.|
