Tuesday, June 6, 2017:  It was a farily clear day at the port cities of Duluth, MN, and Superior, WI, on Lake Superior.
The famous Aerial Bridge could be seen from a visitor center at the top of the hill along I-35.   

The John G. Munson was discharging cargo in calm port waters.

The Aerial Bridge opened part way to let several tour boats go through. 
The bridge is on a schedule to open every half hour when there is boat traffic. 
Local residents know that so they can plan their work and shopping schedules with minimum interruption.

Then the Zelada Desgagnes came in.  Riding high in the water, she was desitined to pick up cargo in the Twin Ports.

Just enough clearance under the bridge to get through. 
It is a photo opportunity for almost everyone when ships come and go.

The Oakglen came in too.  She is 730 feet long and can haul about 22,000 tons of cargo.

The Walter J. McCarthy Jr. left port that day.  At 1000 feet in length, she can haul 36,000 tons.    

Sea gulls watched over boat and people traffic.  Just another day of the life of a gull.

Seventy degree weather was great for people too.  Nice just to be there and watch.

This young lady was feeding sea gulls while a small child chased one.  Canal Park is a draw for people and birds alike.    

Quote of the day:    Duluth is a fun place to visit, especially in summer.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
