Seneca greeted by Wayzata boys

The crew on the salt water ship Seneca might have been a little confused when they found the Bantam A boys hockey team from Wayzata greeting them as they came into the Duluth Ship Canal (above) late Sunday afternoon. The team stepped off the bus for a short walk in Canal Park just as the Seneca was approaching so they stopped by to say hello. Two hours later, they were playing the Duluth East Bantam A team at Mars-Lakeview Arena in Duluth. Meanwhile back in the harbor, the Seneca tied up at the Cargill terminal in Duluth to load grain. No one seems to have told the ships on Lake Superior that today is a holiday. Seven are still coming and nine should be departing today. Photo taken November 11, 2007.
