Sunday, July 19

The cruise ship Clelia arrived at 5:30 a.m. Saturday on the second of six visits to Duluth this summer. It departed at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. On arrival, Duluth was a destination port for passengers that boarded the ship in Toronto and disembarked in Duluth. Twelve hours later, Duluth was the port of origin for a new group of passengers boarding here (pictured) and going to Toronto. The cement boat Alpena also arrived on Saturday morning. It opened the shipping season, arriving on March 30. Shortly after returning from the Twin Ports, the Alpena went into temporary layup. Most years, the boat brings cement here about every three weeks. The Alpena's second trip here this season may be a hopeful sign, perhaps for the local construction business. It is out of layup and back to work.
