On my last visit to Duluth there was quite a bit of ship traffic entering and leaving the port. These are a few of the ships I captured. As is normally the case I managed to visit with a number of “boat nerds” that seem to be present for any ship activity.

I noticed that the Whitefish Bay was leaving the terminal so my wife and I drove down to Canal Park to watch it leave Duluth Harbor. When it made the turn we could see that it had quite a bit of ice on the bow and superstructure. It had been a wild week on Lake Superior.
We also noticed that the Paul R. Tregurtha was going to be arriving in less than an hour so we waited around and watched it come through the Duluth Ship Canal
I never pass up an opportunity to watch the ships as they enter and leave Duluth Harbor. This past weekend was no exception. There was quite a bit of ship activity. Pictured below are some of the ships that arrived and departed last weekend.
