Last night, Wednesday, October 24, 2012, at about 10:15, I saw two ships at anchor as I looked through the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge. I think the Atlantic Erie is to the left, and the Pochard to the right. The Atlantic Erie is waiting to load coal at Midwest Energy; the Pochard is waiting to load grain at CHS. The Atlantic Huron is out there now (Thursday morning) as well as the Mandarin. (Let me know if you think these two ships might be other than the above; after all, it was dark out there) You can see the beginning of Bentleyville a the lower right; they have already erected the metal Christmas tree and were testing some lights last night. Remember, it is exactly 2 months before Christmas. Click here to see more pages featuring the Aerial Lift Bridge.
