The Last Boat in!

The arrival of the 1000 ft Edwin H Gott this morning was a fitting end to the 2011-2012 shipping season.
The zero degree temperatures were a good reminder that there is a bit of winter left.
I hope you have enjoyed the views throughout the year, and I will see you in the Spring.


  1. Wow. Saving the best for last this season.

    Thanks for the photos this year. I look forward to next season's pictures.


  2. Thanks for the great work and keeping us up on all the boat traffic through the season. We'll be looking forward to the next season of boat watching on Superior.

  3. I moved away from Duluth approximately 40 years ago & visit family yearly. I so appreciate your wonderful shots of the ships so that I can keep in touch with the beauty of Duluth. Thank you so much for a job well done. The moonrise was awesome.

  4. As always - STUNNING photos. Dan ^ is right - you saved the best for the season finale. We think you're "in cahoots" with the GOTT captain so that her arrival was lit by morning sun :-) Thanks for bringing the harbor activity to our South Dakota home. Anne & Dave, Sioux Falls

  5. Thank you! What a great site. Brian

  6. Thank you for sharing your labor of love.

  7. My favorite site on the internet. I check it several times a day. It even caused me to visit Duluth last summer for several days. THANK YOU.

  8. Looking at the ships come and go for over 25 years! IT JUST NEVER GETS OLD!!!
    Many Thanks for All You Do!!

    Thank you Dennis for the great pics-I cannot wait for more pics and a great shipping season next year. :)

  10. The only thing cooler than patiently and purposefully watching a trusty old ship glide through the canal on a perfect Duluth evening and then hearing the horn blast reverberate in your chest... is feeling like you got that same exact experience from 400 miles away.

    Awesome site! Thanks Dennis!

  11. The final ship of the shipping season... how
    beautiful! I have been away from Duluth (in
    Michigan) for twenty two years; the Harbor
    stays with me always. Thanking you.

  12. That boat will be there for a long time for sure. Thanks.
