Cool Morning on the River
Our last couple of nights have been very cool here in the Eastern Upper Peninsula. This morning we awoke to a very foggy river because the air temperature was much cooler than the water. Right now the water is around 65 degrees and our morning temperature here was around 40. The result was zero visibility out front. I believe the ship in the picture I took is the John B. Aird coming out of the fog.
We were up by the Locks having dinner tonight and saw the Vancouverborg entering the Locks. It is a beautiful ship that sails out of the Netherlands. On-line shipping records show that the Vancouverborg arrived in Duluth last Friday to load at General Mills. Do you think it is loaded with Cheerios?
We also saw the SCL Bern which is operated out of Basel, Switzerland.
