Hi Everyone!  I am actually still logging vessel passages on the Saginaw River, and I will update everyone in a few weeks.  Life caught up with me for a while and I have not had to time to take or post many photos at all, but for now, here are a few from October 17, 2014

Saginaw River Passages - August 30th

It has been twelve days since the last commercial vessel passage on the Saginaw River, when the Olive L. Moore - Lewis J. Kuber had visited the Bay City and Saginaw Wirt Stone Docks on August 18th, before the arrival of two vessels, Saturday, August 30th.  The Samuel de Champlain - Innovation called on the Lafarge Cement dock in Essexville to unload during the morning hours, followed by the H. Lee White, who called on the Burroughs North dock in Essexville to unload.  Both vessels were expected to be outbound by early Sunday morning.
