The Queen Of The Great Lakes

Hello Blogging friends.
Hope your day is going good for you all!
First off I would like to thank you all for your well wishes.
Today was the first day I was able to put my foot into a regular shoe,
instead of having to wear that heavy boot the doctor gave me.
Knock on wood nothing else happens.
My re-check is next Monday. 

I wanted to share with you my river view.

One day whilst I was sitting out on our dock,
before my toe mishap,
I had the good fortune of having the largest lake freighter go by.

Here she comes.
The largest of our lake freighters coming in at 1013 feet long.

Look how massive this lady is compared to this 
pleasure boat that passed her.

The mighty Paul R Tregurtha.
All ships are talked about in the female pronoun.

Once a week she passes us by on her way to the 
Monroe, MI Edison power plant
to deliver coal.

Every year they hold a raffle near us,
for a 7 day cruise on this mighty ship.
One of my co-workers won the other year,
and loved her trip...especially going through the Soo Locks.
You can read more about this freighter and others by visiting
and clicking on Photo Galleries on the left side and then
 clicking on the Fleet Photo Gallery.

Saying good bye until next time.
Back on her way up to Duluth, MN
to load more coal for the trip back.

Tregurtha Blessings To All!
