What a view Toronto offers from the lake!!  no matter the time . . . day or  . . .

night or day.  Here Salvage Monarch heads out.

Hope takes a spud barge out to the job.

In the Port Lands, this unnamed vessel all decked out in camouflage paint waits.

Maybe someone can help with more names too. . .

Or stories . . . ?

 

Iron Guppy wins my prize for most colorful name.  Bravo to the school kids who dubbed it such.

And here’s the story that links Iron Guppy with William Rest.

Call this Ambassador Bridge Detroit to Lake St. Clair, the sixth Great Lake.  For starters at sunrise, it’s Argentia Desgagnes.  

Offloading coal at USSteel, it’s Clyde S. Van Enkvort, formerly a DonJon tug.

Here’s a waterside view of Cheyenne.

Upclose to the Detroit Jazz Fest, it’s Lake Guardian and

Escanaba, WMEC-907.

Farther north, it’s Bristol Bay and

this tragic sight of SS Ste Clair, sister ship of SS Columbia.

And closing out this post, it’s a Seadoo above the lifeboat of

Salvage Monarch.  A hanging Seadoo like this is something I’ve never seen before.  It strikes me as a good idea.
