A view of the entrance to the Duluth harbor. Ships from all over the Great Lakes and the world visit the port every year.

Seven ships lined up on New Year’s Day on Lake Superior,just outside the Duluth harbor, awaiting their turn for entry. At one point there were eight ships waiting.

On September 16th and 17th, the Aerial Lift Bridge in Duluth was lit in blue for Ovarian Cancer Awareness. The full moon also got in to the act, rising up over Lake Superior and adding it’s warm glow to the surface of the lake. And, for good measure, you have to have a ship coming under the bridge.

Today marked the beginning of the Duluth Tall Ships Festival and thousands of people showed up to watch as the ships entered the shipping channel on their way to dock in the harbor. As much as I don’t enjoy large crowds, I couldn’t resist being where I could capture all the action as the ships passed.
I have finished my week of training as a Minnesota Slip Bridge operator and am now prepared to spend many hours this summer on duty with the bridge and near the water. I’ve discovered that all the activities going on around the bridge can be very distracting and that one never takes their eyes off the bridge when it’s in operation. Other than that, I’m looking forward to an exciting several months hanging out at the harbor. After all, I’ve got a view from my office that’s hard to beat.
