The MarBacan arrived Duluth after a short time at the anchorage on Sunday evening, August 7, 2016. She will begin loading grain at the Riverland Ag dock on Monday morning. She was in Gibraltar on April 17 of this year. From there, she sailed to Houston, Texas, then to Lebanon and Turkey before turning back to sail to the Great Lakes and eventually, today, to Duluth.

Happy Sunday in Duluth

While the MarBacan hides behind the South Pier Light, waiting to come in to load grain at Riverside Ag, the CSL Assiniboine was waiting beyond her for the Stewart J. Cort to complete loading iron ore pellets at the BNSF dock. Meanwhile back at the Duluth piers,  visitors were waiting for the Paul R. Tregurtha to make the turn to the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge, on her way out with 68,000 tons of coal to deliver to the St. Clair power plant of Detroit Edison. All this about 3 pm on August 7, 2016 on a beautiful Duluth summer day.
