You can see the gulls getting stirred up on the small islands found in the St. Marys River. These 'islands' were formed when soil that was dredged from the shipping channel in the 1960's was dumped here. When the water level was high, they were underwater. But now they are visible and have become a nesting area for gulls. This is a very noisy and smelly addition to the river during the early summer days.
Yesterday boats included the Stewart J. Cort and the Alpena.
