This past week marked the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald in Lake Superior 45 years ago on November 10, 1075. As the Gordon Lightfoot song tells the tale, she went down off Whitefish Point in a massive storm. I've watched the big ore carriers go through the Soo Locks and the Duluth Canal. They are very impressive. The museum at Whitefish Point is a must-see experience if you are in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
We saw the Arthur Anderson enter the Duluth Canal in 2016. She was the last ship in contact with "The Fitz" on that fateful night in 1975 and was the first on the scene.
