Yorktown

Once again a ship plying the Great Lakes has gone aground.

The cruise ship Yorktown became stranded in the Detroit River Saturday evening.  She was freed within hours and cleared to proceed to Cleveland.

There were no injuries reported with the 95 passengers and 35 crew members.

We've seen the Yorktown in the St. Marys River several times this summer.

 She has docked in at the Carbide dock in the Sault.  I've enjoyed seeing this beautiful ship many times.

The last day I sighted the Yorktown was August 22 as she was heading down bound at about 10 pm.  I took this picture with my new camera but I have to work on night shots!
