End of the Summer Beach Swim and Picnic

Yesterday was the last day of summer for me and the Gitche Gumee Museum.  Today starts fall hours (daily 2-5pm except Saturdays noon-5pm).  To celebrate being the last day of summer, I headed to the beach with friends, Jamey and Lois.  Jamey and I did snorkel for about a minute.  The storm last week mixed up the water so even the water temperature just off shore was colder than it was a week or so ago.  It still felt good to dive in.

Fire and sunset....

The storm last week eroded more of the shoreline and exposed layers of black sand.....


Jamey and Lois found a tree frog.  I went to a few ID web sites.  It appears to be a spring peeper tree frog.  What do others think?





The storm last week burred a stump vertical with the roots sticking straight up from the sand.
