As first-timers to the Great Lakes we had a wonderful day out to see just how the lakes impact the area. While my phone thought we were in Canada we did not need passports and nor did we set foot there although we could almost touch it at one point.
p.s. Later in the week we found out we were quite lucky to be at the
Locks on Tuesday. On Wednesday a large freighter ran aground in the
entry area to B Lock which shut down all water traffic in both
directions until late Friday.
This was a great day out and we gained a better understanding of what it means to be a mariner in this area. For sure there's plenty of scope for writing sea shanties.
