It was a banner weekend up north! Shipping traffic on the Manitou Passage is back. Ever wonder which ship or freighter or tug you’re seeing, way off in the distance? My go-to website for that info is ais.boatnerd.com. Have a great and sunny Monday.

Thanks Meggen for the beautiful and interesting photos we’ve come to expect from you. I think that the ducks are buffleheads which are fascinating for their diving antics. I wish the 1000 footers could find deep water closer to shore so we could see them in all their magnitude . All the best to all.


The Manitou Passage! I wonder how many brave explorers died in trying to establish this great shipping lane before that famous French adventurer Jacque LePoison succeeded ! 🙂 Thanks for the pretty pictures.
