Last Saltie Departure

The last ocean freighter of the season departed last evening on a race to beat heavy ice in the Seaway bays and rivers.
It was not unusual in the days of sailing vessels that they would become icebound when early cold arrived, like this year. The sailors would walk to shore and camp until spring.
