It's been awhile since I've gone anywhere for the fun of it, but a break in the on-and-off rains we've been getting was all it took. Even though AIS showed nothing promising at Alpena, skies were clearing up that way, so I made one of my famous quick decisions and headed there. So glad I did! I'm starting to learn my way around and turned on a new street where I was pleasantly surprised to see two large research vessels at dock!

Was finally able to be at Alpena when the vessel Alpena came to the Lafarge dock, this afternoon.

File comment: Straight-on shot as she enters Thunder Bay. Alpena, with her classic pilot house and colorful stack colors, is a favorite of many Boatnerds.
