Walter J McCarthy Jr departed Duluth 07/27/2018


Jeffery the Gull here!   What a great sunrise, I often stop by just to enjoy the sun coming up over the lake.

There goes the Walter J McCarthy Jr.  A good old 1000 footer capable of carrying 78000 tons of sardines.   Too bad it's still being used to haul rocks, seems like a waste.

Well, I'm off to the landfill for a snack before things get rolling at Bayfront Park for the Weekend.

  2. Wonder why they switched from BNSF to MERC? Were the unloading at one location and loading at another?

    1. They were never at BNSF. Can't unload there anyway. They were at the Lakehead Pipeline dock in Superior undergoing repairs to her belt.

  4. I was able to watch you and the ship Jeff. Lots of ducks/mergansers (?) traffic on the water, too.
    Thanks for the nice video!
