Cruise Ships & River Traffic

Clelia II, I wrote about this ship in a previous post. Sounds like a great trip.

Grand Mariner, a vessel of the American Canadian Caribbean Line cruises the Great Lakes during the summer. Their schedule shows some very interesting trips. The itinerary looks interesting but pricey.

Today's pictures were taken by Bill K., the faithful reader and commenter. Bill enjoys boat watching from the Soo and is great at keeping us updated when I'm away.

Yesterday we were home all day working in the yard. I think weeds grow faster and taller here in the north. I was working on the seawall we have that is made of rocks. It was full of weeds at least two feet tall. Luckily, the roots don't grow deep which makes them easy to pull. However, the sheer number of them is overwhelming.

Yesterday's ships that I saw were:
H. Lee White
John J. Boland
Cason J. Calloway
American Integrity
Indiana Harbor
Gordon C. Leitch
Presque Isle
Paul R. Tregurtha

My husband and I, from Zanesville, Ohio, were at the locks on July 1 and got to see the H. Lee White lock through. I'm really enjoying your blog, especially the lock and ship pictures. Thanks!

Thanks Lois. Glad you got to see a boat lock through. With the downturn in the economy, shipping is really slow this summer. I feel lucky to be here all summer. My parents live here so we have a great time with them.

Lois, I see on your profile that you are retired teacher. So am I. I do part-time work but love having the flexibility to do what I want.
