WARNING: This post is about ships! As some of you know, I am a huge ship nerd in the lovely port city of Duluth. I have a pair of binoculars in my office for ship watching and I really should have a set for at home. The start of the shipping season is upon us in the Great Lakes, but with the massive amounts of ice yet on Lake Superior, the cutter must go out and make a path for ships to depart and arrive. It has long been a dream of mine to ride along on the cutter during this time of year. This video might be as close as I get to the real thing.
