July 19, 2013 More Ships

This morning we woke to more storms and more rain so I cleaned and did laundry. There is a double load washer and dryer in the ladies room that does a great job.  By late afternoon, the rain and wind stopped and the temperature dropped dramatically.

So we decided to go to the Elks for their fish fry - YUM!  We had a great time talking to the locals.  I just love going to the Elks or Moose or Legion or VFW when we visit small towns.

Afterwards we decided to take a little drive.

This is the Saint Mary River north of Lake Huron.  This area is part of the channel:

The ferry in the distance is for the little island in the middle - Sugar Island:

We passed the locks and saw a ship in the upstream lock.  So we found a place to watch it after it came thru the locks.  Here is a picture of the International Bridge and the raised railroad bridge:

And here she comes:

07-19-13 Sault Ste Marie (21)

We continued our drive on the west side of Sault Ste Marie and found this little park - and saw the same ship continuing her journey:

Tomorrow’s weather is supposed to be BEAUTIFUL so we are hoping to take the Soo Locks Tour Boat.

Stay tuned and enjoy today!
