Darkly Floating By
The Sun was unable to penetrate the dark floater -- so it slid underneath.
Ship: Lafarge Innovation
Rolling slowly up the Calumet River. The Lafarge is a self-unloading cement carrier ship -- out of Cleveland. That mast is the tug-boat part of the ship. The tug is the Samuel de Champlain which is 140 ft. long. The innovation part of the ship is 406 ft. long. When connected the ship measure 543 ft. long.
Lafarge Innovation Tug
A close-up of the Tug of the ship Lafarge. I believe that's one of the Chicago Concrete Companies it's along side -- and it's loading the ship. I've been noticing 3 and 4 barges piled with concrete rocks-- which are emptied & refilled -- in the inlet of the old Steel Plant. It seems as though the building of the Lakeside Community Development on the new Lake Shore Drive has started. Off the Calumet River.

Federal Weser in Port
Calumet River. This bulk carrier sails under the Marshall Islands Flag. It was built in China in 2002, along with 4 other sister ships. Wheat is one of it's cargos. This beautiful ship stops at several ports in the USA and Canada on the Great Lakes -- as well as in the Netherlands, Italy, Norway and Germany.
