Four salt water ships are expected to arrive in the Twin Ports today, with at least one, the Ziemia Lodzka, going to anchor. The BBC Russia and the Nogat will be here for the 2nd time this season; the Gadwall will be making its 3rd visit of the year. The Ziemia Lodzka is making its 1st trip here this season, it made 4 trips here in 2005. Above, it is at anchor on the 4th of July in 2005. It was built in 1992 in Turkey but became the Lake Champlain before leaving the shipyard. In 2003, it went back to being the Ziemia Lodzka.

The Polish flagged Ziemia Lodzka was built in 1992 in Turkey but became the Lake Champlain before leaving the shipyard. In 2003, it went back to being the Ziemia Lodzka. Still with that name, the ship’s Polish crew has been loading the cargo holds with spring wheat over the last two days. They should be taking the ship under the Lift Bridge later today as they head for Spain to deliver their cargo.
