A summer of golf

As some of you know, this summer I changed the museum hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to 6:00 to 8:00 at night so I can play golf twice a week.  My game was progressing, but then I found out from watching YouTube videos that my grip was "weak."  I corrected the grip and now I've changed my swing, so my scores have been inconsistent.  However, my drives have been much better overall and I'm continuing to work on the rest of my game.  Golf is difficult, but I am enjoying it a lot.  Thanks to all the women in our Wednesday league as well as to the Grand Marais guys who have encouraged me on Tuesdays.

An injured coyote crossed the cart path in front of us, stopped in a clearing, and headed into the woods.  He was limping.  My camera was in my golf bag, so it took me a few minutes to retrieve it and get a picture just before the coyote disappeared into the woods.

Gorgeous evening in Grand Marais

I am sure some of you who have followed my blog are disappointed in my lack of posts.  This past week I have been having modem problems.  Before that -- just a busy summer.  Thanks to Doug and Susan Moore, who visited this past weekend, I was able to get out and hike to the end of the breakwall.

July 4th Celebration

Although it was WAY too hot, we still had a blast celebrating the July 4th holiday.  Thanks to my son and his family for a great time!

My grandson, Keenen, rode on the fire truck for the parade!

Although I tried to talk him out of it, Jonathan continued the tradition begun by the museum founder and wore the 1800s bear coat in the parade.  The temperatures were in the mid-80s -- way too hot for me to wear the coat.

I think we had more people than usual in Grand Marais on the 4th.  The picture below shows some of the people lined up to watch the parade.
