We were in Duluth, Minnesota last weekend ship watching. On Friday were in Canal Park to watch the Mesabi Miner arrive. It didn’t appear to have any problem entering the harbor even though there were some large waves.

A close-up of some of the crew as the ship passed under the Lift Bridge. The crew was probably happy to be getting off of the lake.

Just as the Miner was turning to travel down the harbor I noticed a small Coast Guard vessel leaving the harbor. I manage a few shots of it as it fought though the high waves in the ship canal.

The next day conditions were even worse as we watched the Miner exit the ship canal and head out into the lake.
