Every time I go on the William A. Irvin and stay the night, something new is discovered, some new story comes along to remind me how many people have seen or heard something that scares them or confirms the fact that the ship is haunted.
Duluth Paranormal is going to investigate the William A. Irvin October 4th. Thanks to the DECC who has invited the staff to return and investigate. This time the group will be filming their experience for a webcast as well as trying new equipment. There is one other new thing.
The largest ship in the fleet that sails the Great Lakes ran aground Saturday afternoon off Bayfront Park in Duluth. The ship, which measures in at 1,013.5 feet, ran aground around 4 pm, giving folks at Bayfront an unexpected, up close look at the freighter.
The 453 foot Antigua ship "Diana" was destined to be the first "saltie" to enter the Duluth Harbor for the 2014 shipping season. Her entry, like much of the shipping season, has been delayed due to ice.
Whether you're a tourist or a native of the area, a ride on one of the Vista Fleet boats is a MUST! For me, preferably a dinner cruise, but there are many different cruises available to fit everyone's taste and style. Now, with the return of the Vista Star, there will be even more possibilities!
It's always sad to know that we are at that point in our seasons that warrants the shipping traffic to take a short hiatus. However, it also means that Spring is getting a bit closer and we'll soon be watching several ships enter our Port while we're laying on a beach towel, soaking in the sun, on Park Point.
