 Post subject: Ghost ships on the St. Clair River
Unread postPosted: November 6, 2016, 3:48 pm 
Morning came with a thick blanket of fog and the sound of fog horns on the river. It burned off by noon, and I got some good shots of the ships in both settings.

File comment: The first ship was the Edwin H. Gott, moving down-river to Conneaut. You can't see anything? Neither could I! Only the humming engines let me know when they were passing by.

File comment: Tug Escorte and work barge Ocean Basque 2 were moored on the Canadian side of the river. I had to guess at the name of the barge, since part of its name is covered by the tire.
