    Nice photos!
    Mark I hope you’re available to catch the Neah Bay as it sails in tonight, somewhere around 7 PM.
    It will be docking North of the Bridge on the West Bank.
    See you there!

    Not only is it Port Fest weekend –Lorain is 176 yrs old today! Lots have certainly happened along the banks of the Black River in those 176 yrs. The photos really capture the transformations. Hard to believe the west bank was a swamp at one time. Love to see the photos with so many ships going up and down the river.
