It's always an awe-inspiring sight to watch, up-close, a 1,000-footer glide slowly, smoothly, silently through the Duluth ship canal and under the Aerial Lift Bridge -- as the onlookers in the attached photo experienced on Thursday when the freighter Walter J. McCarthy Jr. motored into port under a partly cloudy sky.

You can see for yourself today, as the 1,000-foot American Century is scheduled to arrive around lunchtime. A forecast of mostly sunny skies, light west winds and highs in the 50s should make it a pleasant day to spend down along the lakeshore.
