Lakers

Lakers

A cool thing about living near the Great Lakes, in the middle of North America, is seeing lake freighters large enough to be oceangoing ships steaming past.

The St. Clair River, linking Lakes Ontario and Erie with Huron, Michigan, and Superior, is a great place to see lakers. The channel is about a mile wide so you can get pretty close.

The 740-foot-long Baie Comeau is a new addition, being commissioned last summer. Here she is downbound for Quebec City. I timed my lunch at work to take a few photos, including this one.
