Beautiful Boat Watching This Weekend

 Although boat traffic has been rather slow this weekend, we have been treated to some beautiful boats to enjoy.  The United States Coast Guard Mackinaw, an ice breaker, went up the St. Marys River on Friday at 10 AM.  But then I saw the Mackinaw on Saturday, August 17, while visiting Mission Hill Overlook.

 We also saw the Lake Guardian, a research vessel of the Environmental Protection Agency as she headed out to Whitefish Bay.

Saturday evening we saw a beautiful sunset while visiting my sister at Birch Point.  It was a stunning evening. 

This afternoon we saw the Thunder Bay-a new ship for the Canada Steamship Lines.  I believe she has a load of coal out of Duluth.
