Mentor Headlands Lighthouse, Freighter Enters Fairport Harbor

Yesterday, we visited Mentor Headlands State Park to walk the dunes and do some bird watching. We saw a few Ruddy Ducks and also a few Buffleheads. Unfortunately, the ducks were a little too far out of reach for a decent photo. Most of the smaller birds seemed to be hiding, taking cover from the very brisk winds. While we walked, a barge and tug (Pathfinder/Dorothy Ann)  were entering Fairport Harbor. Here are a few photos (click on any image for a larger view).
