I believe this one was loaded with coal. Did you know that transporting by ship is 60 times more energy efficient than shipping by truck? Who says you can't learn anything on my blog...
Wait! What is that, on the horizon?
I think I HAVE stepped back in time....There goes a tug, to take part in the welcoming committee:And many other sailing vessels went out to join the party.
Both piers were packed with people, and they lined the boardwalk. The ship saluted them all with cannon blasts!I secretly kept hoping to see Johnny Depp.After sailing under the lift bridge, they made way through the harbor to their parking spots by the DECC (convention center). We did not join the huge throngs of people who actually toured the ships, we just enjoyed them from afar. From all reports, it was the largest attended event ever held in Duluth. Good for them!
As for us, we left the throngs, and headed back to our peaceful room for some dinner and a swim and a bonfire.
Tomorrow, more Duluth excitement!
