By now, we all know the groundhog is a liar! The only sure sign of spring on the #GreatLakes is seeing a loaded buoy deck. #USCG #GreatLakes #USCGCHollyhock #ATON #WorkHardPlayHard #Erie #LakeErie #DirtyJob #Spring #PortHuron

Good morning all! What a view from the International Space Station! You know something is big when you have to look at it from low Earth orbit. #GreatLakes #MackinacBridge #StIgnace #MackinawCity #StraitsOfMackinac #LakeHuron #LakeMichigan #ISS #InternationalSpaceStation #NASA

Is USCGC Alder part dolphin or is there just a bit of swell on the lake? Thanks for the photos Sue Bob Kruse! #USCG #USCGCAlder #MakeWayForTheKing #HailToTheKingBaby #FanPhoto #GreatLakes #Dolphin #Underway

It may be "spring" but our crews up north are making sure they'll be ready on the ice incase they're still needed in June. #USCG #SemperParatus #training #GreatLakes #StationStIgnace #UpperPenninsula #PureMichigan #Ice #IceRescue

Don't we need spring to show up before we can do 'spring' cleaning? ;) Keep up the work Alder! The buoys won't stand a chance. #USCG #GreatLakes #SpringCleaning #USCGCAlder #HailToTheKingBaby #MakeWayForTheKing #Duluth

Not your typical way to work buoys, but USCGC Bristol Bay is still getting it done. #USCG #GreatLakes #USCGCBristolBay #AidsToNavigation #ATON #Detroit #Ice #Icebreaking

It would be awful hard to work buoys without a working crane. Good thing the crew is making sure the King will be up to the task. #USCG #GreatLakes #HailToTheKingBaby #KingOfTheWaters #USCGCAlder #MakeWayForTheKing #ATON #AidsToNavigation
