Spent Saturday up in Duluth. Went to see the USS Niagra and other ships at the maritime museum, but the above photo was about the closest I got. Line went half a mile back to the William H Irving, and the people who'd gotten 300 feet down the line told us they'd been there for more than three hours. Amazing exhibit, but too bad Duluth couldn't have arranged it so that everyone who bought a ticket had a chance to see the ships up close.
