I had a high school math teacher armed with adages like “sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you.”  It came to mind this morning as happens sometimes, this set of photos set themselves up, a situation much better than when sometimes you taste the frustration of being minutes or seconds too late.

We arrived in Milwaukee the same time as Lubie, and the sun was just rising. Perfect.

Enjoy this sequence of tug Minnesota yanking the bulk carrier by the stern and rotating it a full 180 degrees.


I would have been even happier with a fixed location, but we were headed in.


I can’t complain though.  And Minnesota, she’s been doing this kind of yanking since 1911!!  She’s been working since before the Titanic sank.
