The CCGS Samuel Risley has just left its berth at Government Dock in Sarnia, Ontario and is enroute to the south end of Lake St. Clair to escort and icebreak a path for an unbound Great Lakes ship. A cold winter has brought a thick cover of ice which has yet to start to break up in many places across the North American Great Lakes.
March 12, 2008.
Note that the crane is extended - they were working on moving a few things around in the stern area at the departure time, 1600 hours.

My pleasure -- thanks for the nice comment. Even if I did not like the Canadian Coast Guard vessels this was the only thing to move on the water that day and it departed just at the right time as I needed to drive south along the river to catch the ferry back to the US and then a long drive home. There is a huge mass of ice piled up in in southern Lake Huron just a few miles north of Sarnia/Port Huron and a good north wind will blow it down to the river and block it up -- which I am hoping will happen because then every icebreaker in the vicinity will be moving the ice and it would be a sight to photograph!
