Bluebird Visitor

A bluebird recently visited my house.  I'm not sure if he liked his reflection, or if he thought it was a competitor.

Evening Hike on the Grand Marais Breakwall

Message to regular blog followers:  As you know I have not been posting on this blog lately.  I must admit I am trying to simplify my life, so I have decided to not post as much as I have in the past.  Thanks for your understanding.

To celebrate summer solstice, last night I walked to the end of the breakwall for sunset.  It was a beautiful evening!

Looking west....







One guy and three kids were fishing...





The damage at the end of the breakwall is the same as it was last year.

Trillium Hike

The other day I went on a hike with friend, Marcia O'Brien.  We started at the Sable Visitors' Center and hiked the trail along the Sable River, past Sable Falls, to the beach.  Then we walked the beach back to town.  It was a beautiful evening and a great way to celebrate the museum's opening.

The trilliums are at their peak!






It is probably not peak flow over Sable Falls -- but a lot of water none the less!



Fog over Au Sable Point....
