With the arrival of the Mesabi Miner this morning at 4:20, the shipping season has ended and the next boats we see moving will be the tugs and ice breakers out in about eight weeks.
Although, I will also be going into winter layup, I will keep the cameras operating so that we can watch the weather and Lake Superior sunrises. I am also planning on adding a new streaming camera at an undisclosed location once the weather warms up.
I would like to thank the owners of Pier B, the Great Lakes Aquarium, and the Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center, including the LSMMA for allowing me to have the cameras where I do.
Also, many thanks to all of you boat watchers who have enjoyed watching the harbor along with me, I truly enjoy knowing that what I do is enjoyed and appreciated.
I am looking forward to the 2014 shipping season and the Good Lord willing, I'll be back at it in the Spring.
Enjoy the rest of winter, Spring is knocking at the door. (well almost)
