Note:  All these photos were taken on September 8–four days ago–after we had reached the northernmost stop on the journey and were returning to Montreal, where I stepped off for a spell.

Six years ago I did two posts ( here and here) about Canadian newsprint transporters that arrived in the sixth boro’s Hackensack River via the Lake Champlain and the associated canals.  A huge paper mill once stood here at the riverside where this spanking new amphitheater aka Amphithéâtre Cogeco–now stands.

Dawn comes sometimes and there’s no sun, only mist and rain like this.   But that light lends itself to looking at other things like water flow around a bow like the one of  Algoma Guardian,  now north bound on Lake Huron.

nb2

Floretgracht‘s very different bow attacks the flow differently.  Floretgracht is now in Hamilton.

nb3

Sichem Dubai was at the Trois Rivieres dock, but now is Louisiana bound. That dock is part of an existing paper mill.

nb4

Not sure what I’m looking at here.

Then the rain came on harder.

Garganey is the same vessel as in the photo here (scroll) escorted into a Quebec City dock by two Ocean tugs.   She’s now in Toronto.

The last leg on this trip will be the focus tomorrow.
