  2. Although PPMI cam is currently not included as a link in the "Camera Page" section list on the right sidebar of the website pages, if you scroll down you will find the PPMI (Park Point Marina Inn) link included in the "Camera Pop-ups" section of same sidebar directly below the "Camera Page" section.

    1. I'm simply not aware if everyone knows this and certainly don't mean to insult anyone's experience level with this website, but - depending on which cam you've loaded, when you hover over the image you will see in the lower right corner either "FS" or 2 small diagonal arrows. Click on either one of these will expand the camera shot to full screen.

  4. Thank you for explaining Greg G., but I was referring to the videos that Dennis makes available for those of us who miss seeing the actual arrivals and departures on the live web cams. Like the video he made of the arrival of the John G. Munson this morning, the 31st.

  5. Hey Dennis...This is Penny in IL..I've got a good one for you to check out, if ya can...It's tough!! When I'm looking at the Harbor Cam, there is a point of land that sticks out. When U look at it from above it is almost directly across from the Lift Bridge. There is what looks like the the front end of the bridge of an old ore boat. Does someone use this as their 'cabin on the lake'?? There are a few pick-ups sitting there, but who knows how long it's been since this view has been updated. Anyway, GOOD LUCK on figuring this out for me, if ya have time. Pen

  6. Hey Greg G. Welcome to the family, don't remember seeing your name b-4. You'll find out that we're pretty good people around this site. We all have the same interest.. Penny in IL

    1. Thanks, Penny. I've been enjoying Den's work for years on this site and his Northern Images site and have just recently become more 'vocal' w/my comments and notes. I live in the Twin Cities area and absolutely LOVE the Twin Ports of Duluth/Superior. I bounced the ideas of adding Glensheen Cam and the Lakewalk Cam off Den in the last couple of weeks and, lo and behold, he was able to work his magic amazingly quick to add the sites to enhance everyone's enjoyment of "watching" Duluth from around the world!

  7. Penny,
    The structure is an old pilot house -- not sure where it is from. It sits on the end of General Mills Pier. There are several business out there that deal with timber along with General Mills.
    Someday, that area may be further developed.

  9. The issue with not being allowed to go full screen has been fixed. It was a YouTube setting.
    Thanks for the heads up!

  10. Whoo, Den, thanks. There doesn't seem to be much that you don't know about the port. Ah Well, thanks a bunch. Pen Still hoping to meet U and the Mrs. sometime early Oct. when sis and I go to Ely. Won't have the computer with me, vacation ya know, so it'll have to be by phone when she and I come to the city. Hope it will work out. I don't do all the phone stuff when I'm away from home. Penny

  11. Thank you Dennis for figuring out the issue and fixing it! I really like the show on my 27 inch screen, whether I manage to catch some live action on the web cams or watch your videos, always on full screen.

    1. Don, thanks so much for the info and links. I'd seen that on the cams many times and always assumed it must be some kind of little guard shack or something. LOL...my new thing learned for the day. :)

    2. With a little paint and some landscaping, It could be my perfect retirement home. What a view.
