Giant ship going under the Lift Bridge in Duluth, MN Paul R. Tregurtha

Video I made of the Paul R. Tregurtha passing under the Duluth bridge back in June of 2014. Thanks for the gold, kind stranger!

 This is one of the most spectacular sights in the United States. That ship went through a VERY narrow passage. Watching a big Superlaker at close range is a real thrill - and in a place like this, you're likely to get very wet. I grew up in Wisconsin and always wanted to go to Duluth-Superior, but didn't get there until I was 68 years old and had lived in California for almost half a century. This ship is the longest ship on the Great Lakes, at 1,013 feet long.
 That was an awesome video. Thank you   I love seeing the giant Lakers. It’s fabulous to get another perspective of what I’ve been seeing further down the Great Lakes system on the Canadian side.
The Welland canal has a lift bridge similar to Duluth’s for the giant Lakers like this, circumventing Niagara Falls from Lake Erie south to Lake Ontario.   I have sat watching the Lakers go under the bridge there many times. It never gets old. ❤
 Great video.  I read that people can rent staterooms on the ship and travel on the lake.  The staterooms are very nice, and people are treated very well.
Mr. Tregurtha had been an executive with the ship company.
I look up the Aerial Tramway Bridge on Google Map and I go to street-view on it, and I "travel" over the bridge from one side to the other.  It reminds me of most waterside places.  Bright, sunny, casual.
 Those dark, black waves created by the passing ship were so scary. The gigantic ship along with those huge waves made humans look so diminutive. On a different note, I really wonder how come the waves were spilling over on to the road Was it because of bad ocean weather or because of the wake created by the passing ship
 Lived in Duluth for a couple years in the 70's.  First thing you'd look at every morning was the wind direction.  This is a strong east wind coming off the lake, and it can be 30 degrees colder by the lake than just over the hill at the airport.
 It’s truly beautiful in person. The waves are giant and when they crash on the shore you can smell the mist in the cold air. There are seagulls everywhere but don’t really bother you. All sorts of WW2 machinery, all sorts of rich history about the iron range and the importance of Duluth shaping the future of Minnesota. The steep hills. The nature up north. The giant beautiful rock formations. While looking out on superior it seems that it goes on forever. There is just something beautiful and peaceful about Duluth.
