I think we were there at the same time near the Ste.Anne dock. I was also present when the first ships were allowed to proceed upriver from Trois-Rivières. What a sight! I don't expect we'll ever see anything like this again.

Excellent shot Marc, I like these tow icebreakers.

Étions-nous au même endroit? Nous avons une photo semblable! Excellent shot by the way.
