Well I’m back and with a TON of photos and a few funny stories….
Our trip went like this…
3 days driving out to Duluth, MN
7 days on Tom’s boat the Mesabi Miner
2 days driving back home… total mileage 2912…

The boat/ship we where on is called the M/V Mesabi Miner
Below is some information I found on www.boatnerd.com

Overall Dimensions (metric)
Length 1004' 00" (306.02m)
Beam 105' 00" (32.00m)
Depth 50' 00" (15.24m)
Capacity (mid-summer) 63,300 tons (64,317 mt)

Power (diesel) 16,000 b.h.p. (11,936 kW)

Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area. Lake Baikal in Russia is larger by volume, as is Lake Tanganyika (The Caspian Sea, while vastly larger than Lake Superior in both surface area and volume, is saline; though presently isolated, in the past, it has been repeatedly connected to, and isolated from, the Mediterranean via the Black Sea).
Lake Superior (48°00’N, 88°00’W) has a surface area of 31,820 square miles (82,414 km˛)[1]—which is larger than South Carolina. It has a maximum length of 350 miles (563 km) and maximum breadth of 160 miles (257 km). Its average depth is 483 feet (147 m) with a maximum depth of 1,333 feet (406 m).[1] Lake Superior contains 2,900 cu mi (12,100 kmł) of water. There is enough water in Lake Superior to cover the entire land mass of North and South America with a foot (30 cm) of water. The shoreline of the lake stretches 2,726 miles (4,385 km) (including islands). The lake's elevation is 600 feet (183 m)[1] above sea level. American limnologist J. Val Klump was the first person to reach the lowest depth of Lake Superior on July 30, 1985 as part of a scientific expedition.
Annual storms on Lake Superior regularly record wave heights of over 20 feet (6 m).[1] Waves well over 30 feet (9 m) have been recorded.[3

I was not sure what to put in for the Location so I put the port where we caught the boat...

OOPS almost forgot to mention... my Sony broke down just hours before our trip... ran up the street to purchase a new camera.. More about that later... :)

Hi Tricia,
The colours in that photography are wonderful. The horizon seem so far yet so clear, you had a wonderful weather then ! The sun's flare add a little something. I am looking forward to read about your new camera !

Hi Tricia, these colours are quite unusual - very golden tones, and the blue reflects welll on the water. I do like your one ray of light shining thru the clouds.
And bad news about the camera - you were lucky it didn't break once you were on the boat!

Hi Tricia :o)
Happy you're back :o) Splendid view and wonderful colours of sky and sea ! I enjoy the waves (remous) and reflection of the sun on sea, bravo !

Hi Trich,
