Ste. Sault Marie


This was taken two  years ago. Hubby and I went for a long drive to Upper Peninsula just to see Ste Sault Marie, Michigan. It was Fall and it's already cold but still the beauty there is awesome. But what gets my attention is how this huge ship can go further when the water is not level. But with what I saw they make an awesome job by filling the other side with water leveled to the other side. I thought it's magical but it's not. It takes time for me to comprehend but hubby explained to me in detail until I figured it out lol!

Do you see another ship is coming? And do you see a water on top and then a water down? The low leveled water will be filled up then the ship will go towards it. I asked hubby why they just have to fill it all the time? So they don't have to do all the process of filling it all the time. Hubby said that the level of water in this area is low that's why they have to do it all over again and again. It was kind of tiresome to think about it at first but when (as I've said) figured it out it makes sense! HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!!

Considering the low level of water in that area, I think it's actually a wise move for them to do that process. Nice photo, Manang KIm! Happy thanksgiving!
