Left for DeTour Village Marina about 10:30. Saw some great sights and ships on the St. Mary’s River. 1000 footers, Mesabi Miner in the DeTour channel, pretty impressive. 5 or 6 others during the day. Passed Lime Island, used to be some sort of station for reloading, had 2 enormous fuel storage tanks. It’s a recreation area now. 2 sights coming into DeTour. Ships no longer in use, John Boardman and the John Sheridan, the bow of one is built into the hillside so it looks like it is coming out of land, unique. Docked at 5:45, wind on the nose all the way no matter which direction we were. Bill and Ella came! Yeah!
