Boats of the St Lawrence River in 2020

FEDERAL CHURCHILL (heading east) and HAPPY RIVER (heading west) pass Morrisburg on the evening of 17 August 2020

As the Federal Churchill sails out of site downriver you can see in the distance the approach of Happy River as it waits in front of Ault Island.

Here are some pics of Happy River from earlier in the day as it passed the Blue Anchor Inn east of Cornwall.

After waiting a couple of hour, the sun was setting in the west. Happy River resumed the journer upstream towards Morrisburg.

Sorry about the quality of the pics. The Mavic 2 Zoom camera is not great in low light.
