2015 April 13 Emerald Isle Returns on First Trip of 2015 Pictures

The Emerald Isle made the first trip over to Charlevoix for the 2015 season today, April 13, 2015. The boat did not leave much after the scheduled time and date for this first trip. The Emerald Isle stayed in port there in Charlevoix much longer than the schedule would have suggested. Perhaps, there were things to check out on the ferry boat considering it is the first trip of the year. In any case, the Emerald Isle was seen out on the horizon close to 4 p.m. with a planned arrival at 4:20 p.m. which was just a little late.

It was hard to tell the ferry from the icebergs floating around until it started to get a little bigger on the horizon.

The Emerald Isle approaches its Beaver Island dock, and backs into its berth.

Vehicles and freight are off-loaded from the Emerald Isle. Most of the vehicles are Central Michigan University vehicles.

Most of the fifteen passengers were workmen for CMU.

First trip of the season sucessful and completed!
