Middle Bass Island
Brig Niagara in Schoolhouse Bay Near Ballast Island, June 25, June 30, July 1, 2008
The US Brig Niagara arrived in Schoolhouse Bay off Middle Bass Island around 1PM on July 25, 2008. She spent the night anchored between Middle Bass and Ballast Islands and left early the next morning on her way to Port Huron, MI. Based in Erie, PA, she is a training ship that calls on various ports in the Great Lakes during the summer. She is available for public visitation in Port Huron from June 27-29, and will probably spend another night in the Lake Erie Islands on her return trip to Erie a few days later.
The Niagara returned on June 30 for another night, on her return trip from Port Huron to Erie. This time, the crew had time to sail around Schoolhouse Bay in some of the onboard sloops and also to do some group climbing on the foremast.
On July 1, we took pictures as the crew raised sails in preparation for a departure under sail power. The Niagara left Schoolhouse Bay around 3PM.
