    Duluth, Minnesota

    October 8, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    Brace yourselves.....I was up so early this morning that I got a photo of the sunrise!

    That was my only glimpse of the sun today. We had a 9 hour, cool, dreary, rainy and foggy drive through the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to Duluth. It was a 2 lane highway with lots of trucks and RVs and a maximum speed limit of 55 mph. JS was irritable with how slow the drive went and how it never stopped raining or drizzling the whole day. He lightened up at one of the rest stops where he said he was "pretending to be a tree"! The scenery would have been even more awesome if the weather had been better.Read more

    Back to civilization

    October 12, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 2 °C

    Nachdem wir heute Morgen das Auto freigeschaufelt hatten, ging es los Richtung Lake Superior.
    Auch wenn es außerhalb vom Wald nicht mehr geschneit hat, war es kein sehr angenehmes Wetter: starker Wind und Schneeregen haben uns entlang der Küste begleitet. Also haben wir nicht so viel Zeit draußen verbracht 🥶😀
    Das Wetter hat allerdings auch besondere Aussichten auf den See ermöglicht! (Siehe Bilder) sieht gar nicht wirklich aus wie ein See, schon fast wie am Meer.

    Sunday Morning

    September 22, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Originally we had planned to go up to Kettle Falls today to watch the Bills game but the hotel closed early this season for maintenance. Cooler morning here in Deep Slough and Namikan Lake in like glass. Weather is supposed to pick up this afternoon.Read more

    Feels like cheating

    September 24, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 11 °C

    Normally when we go on a trip, I need to roll out of bed at 4 am, get dressed, drive to my pre-chosen location, jockey for position with a handful of other photographers, and wait for sunrise. It’s peaceful in its own way... but there’s something to be said for waking to the back of the houseboat in pajamas and slippers, sipping coffee, to get sunrises and sunsets. :)Read more

    Intex Kayak!

    September 23, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Sue and I got a two person intex inflatable kayak from amazon on a whim - I think it was ~$60 on sale. Great purchase! It was kind of a hassle to transport (big and heavy deflated) but we had a nice one of a kind afternoon on the water in pike bay.Read more

    First day, first issue.

    September 19, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We’re still learning how a houseboat handles - that is to say, like a drunk pig. We ended up not beaching properly and turning sideways, which had us end up breaking a propellor blade off. There’s a service boat that comes out and helps - we met Mike (“Red Bird”) who seemed to have had his fill of vacation boaters for the summer. They fixed our propellor, got us towed out and helped us beach for the first night.Read more

    Simple and effective knot!

    September 21, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 20 °C

    Mike (“Red Bird”) taught us a quick, simple and effective knot to use when tying off the boat. After wrapping the rope around the tree a few times, come under the tight rope with the loose end. Make a half loop, then bring the loose end of the rope through that loop. Rinse and repeat as many times as you’d like!

    I practiced with the hot tub tie down. :)

    Petey and the boat

    September 19, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We were kind of concerned at how Petey would do getting on and off the boat. There are gangplanks but we had no idea how he’d do. He took a lot of coaxing for the first one pictured, but from then on out we used the cooler and a little metal step that we have covered by his blanket. He was pretty comfortable with it after the first few times. :)Read more
