You know me and my ships! And a dandy one today sailed into sight. It is the English River! It is owned by LaFarge Cement.
It is hard to see in the picture I hastily took from my desk but see the truck going over the Skyway? If you look directly down from that there is the ship.
Here is a cool picture I found online of our new friend the English River on the Welland Canal.
And another picture snapped in Buffalo.
Here is a shot I like of the English River leaving Cleveland. It was built in 1961 and has a capacity of 5,200 tons.
We do like our Great Lakes freighters here on the Leonard Pennario Web log.
Remember the Herbert C. Jackson?
And the Adam E. Cornelius?
Slowly we are collecting more. This is more fun than bird watching!
And it is exciting, because you never know when one will sail into view.
You never know when your ship will come in!
