Bluewater Panorama

Bluewater Panorama
Here's a view of the Bluewater Bridge, featuring Interlake's other ship named Barker.

James R. Barker, named for Interlake's CEO, is 1004 feet long and was built 1976 at American Shipbuilding in Lorain. This was the third thousand-foot ship on the Great Lakes, and the first built to the what became the standard design. Stewart Cort and Presque Isle, its 1000 foot predecessors, have to be considered experimental efforts.

But the picture's not of the boat; it's of the St. Clair River at the point it leaves Lake Huron. Michigan to the left (or port, as this was taken from Huron Lady II); Ontario to the right (starboard). And the Lake's beyond the bridges.

Have I mentioned lately how much I like the 16-85 mm lens? It's wonderful.
