I was down at the Duluth, Minnesota Harbor to watch the finish of the NorthShore Inline Marathon when I noticed the Mesabi Miner leaving the harbor. I became engrossed in watching the ship and almost missed the elite inline skaters finish the race. This was also the weekend of the Le Festival des Montgolfières  which is Duluth’s balloon festival. A couple of years ago during this same weekend the Mesabi Miner had a steering problem and didn’t make the turn. As a result it ran aground at Bayfront Park during the festival.
