Spring is coming and I know that is true because the shipping season is going to begin in the St. Marys River next week. That's right-due to lack of ice in the river and requests from the shipping companies, the Corps of Engineers is opening the Locks 4 days early.
Next Sunday, March 21, at 7 AM. the Locks will officially open. Due to a previously scheduled trip to the Sault, I will be there. I just hope there is a boat ready to enter the Locks so we can celebrate the return of boatwatching-one of the most fun hobbies. It really doesn't require any work and is very relaxing.
I hope to see some of you boatnerds at the opening. Let me know if you are coming.
