I made this video so that you could enjoy some of the sounds of Duluth. This is the James R. Barker, which entered Duluth on Sunday, June 27. The Barker arrived Duluth for a load of coal. Behind the Barker was one of the Vista Fleet touring boats with a wedding. Immediately after the Barker arrive the Vista boat tooted it’s horn and the bride and groom stood to wave. The crowd waved and cheered. The last time she left Duluth port (May 29) her horn sounded like she had laryngitis. That’s probably why we got the special 5 horn salute.
This electrical box is near Canal Park Lodge. It looks like Ojibewe art. As you can see by the tip top of the photo it was taken where Canal Park Drive and Lake Avenue converge. For many Native Americans the turtle symbolizes North America. If you have more information on this particular work of art or the turtle please add your comments.
We sweated at home until we decided to visit Canal Park. It was comfortable warm, but not overbearing near the water. Also going on today was a dog show lots of people and dogs on Canal Park.
