The German ship Cornelia has been sitting just outside the Duluth, Minnesota harbor entrance for a month and a half. The first of November it entered port to load grain bound for Tunisia. It was detained because of alleged illegal oil discharges into the lake. The Coast Guard would not release the ship until bonds were in place to cover any claims against the owners. Earlier this week the ship returned to port to take on supplies and fuel. Yesterday was the last day it could leave Duluth and still get across the Great Lakes before the St. Lawrence Seaway closes for the winter. Fortunately it sailed under the lift bridge Friday morning.

More photographs from the Duluth Waterfront can be found on my website.
