What a Difference a WiFi Connection Makes

Now back home with a strong connection to the Internet, I’ll publish a few details and photos from my trip north.

The weather in Duluth was not ideal, to say the least. The most annoying development was fog…thick, thick fog. I knew it could be quite cold there, but the fog right at the shipping canal really put a damper on ship-watching.


The shipping canal is 30 yards away or so, but you’d never know it as the soupy fog rolled in. 

This is how that area looks when things are clear:


One thing I do love when the fog rolls in is the sound of the ship warning horns as they move along slowly (speakers on? crank ’em up!).


Weather reports indicated the fog cleared up the North Shore, so Abby and I took that beautiful drive along Lake Superior. Sure enough, twenty or so miles north of the city the fog cleared and allowed us gorgeous views and stops at special places along the way. Places like Gooseberry Falls State Park…


…the Split Rock Lighthouse…


…Two Harbors, where two ships were loading taconite pellets for steel production. It was interesting to watch the 1,004 foot long American Spirit maneuver into her space at the loading dock.


Our three day visit to the Duluth area complete, we next headed east through the beautiful Porcupine Mountains of Michigan’s U.P. and on to Sault Ste. Marie.
