Enter the Behemoth

There is quite a bit happening in this image I captured today. The giant Great Lakes freighter Calumet, built in 1973, weighing in at over 10,000 tons and 630 feet long (192 meters), was entering the channel at Grand Haven, Michigan. The ship dwarfed the Lighthouse as a kite boarder in the foreground took in the view.

Tall Ship

The tall ship, Friends Good Will, sailed out of the channel in South Haven, Michigan today on its way to the big lake. The ship is a reproduction of the original sailing vessel which had its maiden voyage in 1811.
