Who’ld a thought a sailboat stuck in harbor because of too much wind!!

Well yesterday they put out a small craft warning because of high winds on Lake Erie.  We don’t push our luck and heed all small craft warning and stayed at anchor here in Lorain OH.

We saw a Tow Boat bringing in a barge yesterday.  I studied up on it and they are called Tow Boats because they Tow their loads.  Not Tug Boats.

The Tow Boat was bringing a barge into the harbor here.

I am asking for your help in what kind of bird this is?  It was standing on the end of the Pier for awhile and I would like to know what it is.

They swam over to it with a harness and were working with them.

The Coast Guard coming to a boaters aid.

Hopefully the wind will slow and tomorrow we will have traveling news.

  1. Great shot of a Great Blue Heron

  2. The Bird is a Great Blue Herring. What happened to the one boat that the USCG had to render aid?

  3. Thank you,
    I can’t tell you as they left and I wasn”t close enough to eavesdrop.
