Duluth, in Minnesota, is a working harbor. Ships not only come from various parts of the Great Lakes, but also Europe. One of the chief exports from the port is grain and there are several grain collection and storage sites that line the harbor. After awhile, one can begin to spot the difference between the “lakers” and the “salties”. Wherever they are coming from, I never tire of seeing the large ships traverse the canal and pass under the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge, nor do I tire of the sound of the ship’s horns as the arrive and depart and the response from the bridge.
