The Last Saltie!

The Federal Sakura arrived at 20:45 last evening and is the last saltie (ocean going vessel) of the season.
When a cold tear drop rolled down my face, I could tell if it was because of the cold breeze blowing off Lake Superior or the nostalgia of seeing the last ocean freighter of the year.
Two tugs waited in the inky black water to assist the boat to Peavey Elevator for a load of grain.
