We happened to be in Duluth, Minnesota when a Nor’easter came through with gusts up to 50 mph. Unfortunately my wife had gone shopping so I was without a car. I spent the morning watching the waves crash into Park Point Beach. Just as she returned from her shopping trip I noticed the Lake Guardian was going to enter Wisconsin Point so we jumped in the car and drove over to Wisconsin Point to check out the waves and the Lake Guardian.

We reached Wisconsin Point just as the Lake Guardian entered the harbor. The Lake Guardian is the largest research vessel on the Great Lakes. It goes out several times a year to carry out research activities. This was the first opportunity I had to photograph the Lake Guardian. he wind was blowing so hard I had trouble walking down the breakwater. The waves were crashing over the breakwater as the ship entered the harbor.

There were a large number of Ring-billed Gulls on the breakwater trying to stay out of the wind.
