7/9 - Tall Ships in Sandusky - Don Lee
Four Tall Ships -- Appledore V, Royaliste, Mysterious Ways and Journey -- were in Sandusky for the Fourth of July weekend.  Appledore V sold rides and all sold dockside tours. The ships tied up alongside the west wall of Battery Park Marina between the marina and the Sandusky Yacht Club


Appledore V out on Sandusky Bay with passengers, and a flight of cormorants is in search of lunch.


Appledore V heads for the wall. Royaliste is visible beyond her bow

In his not-so-tall ship, a kayaker examines the visitors. Royaliste is right behind him and Mysterious Ways, with the design of a Chinese Junk, is in the background. Just visible beyond Royaliste is the blue hull of the Journey.

7/9 - Alpena leaving Buffalo - Brian Wroblewski

The Alpena all set to depart, just before the "G"  tug Washington arrived at the LaFarge Cement Dock below Ohio St. Bridge

The Washington has tied on to her stern and is slowly pulling her away from the LaFarge dock on the Buffalo River.

7/9 - Atchafalaya in Huron Ohio - Don Lee
The dredge Atchafalaya of Houma, La., has been in Huron for the Corps of Engineers harbor dredging contract. Huron's "mile-long" pier offers a good long look at any boat, inbound or outbound. Dredging spoils from Huron Harbor used to have to be deposited at the Corps' confined disposal facility (known locally as the "spoils site") at the end of the pier but, with the area only partially filled, the Corps ruled Huron River bottom silt was no longer contaminated enough for the CDF and Huron River dredging spoils are now dumped in designated open-lake dumping sites.

Atchafalaya inbound passing Huron Light.

Heading into town. Atchafalaya dredges as far upriver as the ConAgra slip, where freighters still dump iron ore for the W&LE dock. The ConAgra grain facility across the slip is out of business and Huron is considering how to develop the site.

Turned around, Atchafalaya heads back out.

And so back out into the lake, with varying levels of interest from pier strollers and cyclists.
