The Freighter Edward L. Ryerson

(Wyandotte, MI) Pictured on your left is the Edward L. Ryerson, a 730-foot straight-deck bulk carrier that usually carries taconite pellets from Minnesota and Wisconsin to steel mills along Lake Erie. The graceful boat took the eastern route around Grosse Ile, so I did not get a closeup view of this magnificent freighter.

The vessel was about a half-mile out in the water, and I could barely hear the noise of its engines standing as I was in the cacophony of Bishop Park.
