Chasing the HAPPY RIVER - 6 August, 2019

On a beautiful summers day we had the chance to chase one of the best looking ships sailing the St Lawrence Seaway, the HAPPY RIVER. We began as it arrived from up river sailing east through the Iroquois Locks. We caught it again as it left the locks. Then we watched from our Flying Camera, the "St. Lawrence Maverick" as it passed the Loyalist Park, just west of Mariatown. A quick chase in the car along Lakeshore Drive and we arrived at the west end of Mariatown, just in time to get our Flying Camera up in the air to watch it passing through the narrow channel there. Finally, we got some good pics from the Crysler Park Marina (east of Morrisburg, just west of Upper Canada Village) as it passed down river on its way to Montreal.

29 HD pics and 2 fight videos.

Note the very unusual passage to the north of Canada Island - to avoid the wake of the Laker passing in the opposite direction?
