Buffalo, N.Y. - Brian W.
1-USS-Hurricane-9-14-12-BW.jpg (197778 bytes)
USS Hurricane was loaded with visitors, she had a security perimeter around her to keep small craft away, & a period correct US flag was flying over the North Pier to commemorate the War of 1812.
2-USS-Hurricane-9-14-12-BW.jpg (131046 bytes)
 Katmai Bay and the Hurricane were getting lots of attention from the public here in Buffalo. Afternoon wait time in line to tour the ships was about a 1/2 hour each.
1-Katmai-Bay-9-13-12-BW.jpg (218468 bytes)
A patrol keeps watch in the Buffalo River while the Katmai Bay is open for tours at the North Pier (Erie Basin) on the Buffalo River. The skyline of downtown Buffalo rises in the background, lit by the setting sun.

The Cuyahoga is unloading at the Lake & Rail Elevator pier on the Buffalo River Thursday morning. The Marine "A" Elevator looms in the background to the left, waiting for a boat that will never come.
2-Cuyahoga-9-13-12-BW.jpg (100188 bytes)
The old Marine Unloading legs stand silent sentinel over the ship as geese cruise by. Industrial activity in this section, in what is basically an enlarged creek, contrasts with the natural surroundings found here.
3-Cuyahoga-9-13-12-BW.jpg (87910 bytes)
Later in the evening, the Cuyahoga departs without assistance as the G tugs sit idly at their dock. The ship is using her thruster, the engine, and the knuckle of the Lake & Rail pier to pivot through the turn. 
4-Cuyahoga-9-13-12-BW.jpg (91166 bytes)
Now she's swinging well into the 90 degree bend and about to start down the reach to Ohio St. The Lake & Rail has a slab sided appearance on this section of the river, the only Buffalo elevator with this feature.
5-Cuyahoga-9-13-12-BW.jpg (147123 bytes)
Now caught in the evening's setting sun light, the ship is about 1/2 way through the draw at Ohio St. She needs to make a 45 degree angle turn to Starboard so as to clear the bridge & head downriver.
6-Cuyahoga-9-13-12-BW.jpg (105704 bytes)
Out of the draw & straightening herself for the reach down to Michigan St. Where else would you rather be on a warm summer evening than down by the waterfront, watching free entertainment? It's better than TV!
