Shipping and Swimming in the St. Lawrence

I always find it so strange to watch a huge cargo ship sail down the St. Lawrence. It's no wonder they call this river Highway H2O!
Wagenborg’s fleet consists of over 230 box shaped, ice-strengthened multipurpose vessels under Dutch flag.
This is Azoresborg, a General Cargo that was built in 2010. It has a carrying capacity is 17407 t DWT and her current draught is reported to be 5.7 meters. Her length overall is 143 meters and her width is 22 meters.
cool shot, interesting info

This ship is magnificent! Love the people on the floating dock watching the ship go by.

That's a big ol' boat! Love the contrast of the kids in the foreground. Seems that there are some windmill blades among the cargo. Those are not easy to cart around!

Love the swimmers watching. They also give some perspective. That ship is huge!

seems strange to see people swimming so close to it too

Must be odd to swim with something so large passing so close.

So good to see you pop in once again, Kathy!
Thank you for commenting!

It seems incongruent to see both the ship and the children in the same waterway.

Interesting shot, the contrast in size has an unreal quality to it
