Thursday June 11

Yesterday seemed like a slow day on the river. We were working in the yard most of the day, and I use a boat sighting as a reason (excuse) to take a break. After all, I have to get the name and then go in the house and write it down. Now that I use Twitter, I send out a quick tweet. By that time, I usually get some refreshment and you know how it goes. It seems like I didn't have many breaks yesterday. But in the end, we saw:
Paul R. Tregurtha
Peter R. Cresswell
Walter J. McMarty Jr.
Herbert C. Jackson
American Integrity

I didn't take that many breaks. We won't be posting boat traffic over the weekend because we are going down state to see two of our children who are coming to town. If you see the boat traffic, send a comment or an email to saultboatwatcher@gmail.com and I will post what you see.

We will be visiting friends and family for the next few days. You can follow my adventures there at http://brendabenedict.com.

Thanks

Back again. Saw the J W Shelly up bound past Alfred Park at 5:30 PM ....getting ready to lock though up bound. She was empty and riding high.

Wanted to add to my earlier report also saw the Tug Chippawa assisting the Ocean goer TUSCARORA into the locks.
