I noticed on the Marine Tracker that the American Century was going to be arriving in Duluth late in the day so my wife and I walked down Canal Park to watch it come in.
It was a beautiful evening so we hung around the waterfront. As we were about to leave we heard the alarm sound indicating the bridge was going up. This time the Cason J. Callaway was coming out of the harbor. As we walked over to watch the ship come through the harbor we had a beautiful view of the sun setting over the western Hills.
We were just leaving after watching the Callaway go under the Duluth Lift Bridge when we noticed another ship heading for the Ship Canal. The third ship was the US Coast Guard Cutter Alder which is based in Duluth. It was starting to get dark but I managed a few shots of the Alder as it sailed through the Ship Canal.
