Big Fish Day

We started our day enjoying the colors of the sky and Lake Superior. The blue sky was reflected in the blue of the water of the Great Lake. "C" worked on cutting the grass around the cabin and reestablishing the trails through our woods. "K" worked on the woodshed behind the sauna. After a visit and lunch with "D", we went to the Mouth of the Gratiot for a little R & R. "K" caught a 22" and a 26" steel head trout - approximately a five pounds and an eight pounds a piece. We returned to the cabin to clean and pack of fish for the freezer.

Sunset tonight was brief but beautiful.

Beautiful Day

We worked on projects during the morning hours, at noon we took a leisurely sauna. We went to Calumet to pick up a few items. We had company this evening so we made a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We had a great dinner and conversation with a gorgeous 3 hour sunset. The entire sky was various shades of reds, pinks, and blues. It was a great day at Cedar Bay. Temperatures ranged from 39 degrees in the AM to 60 degrees in the late afternoon.

Memorial Day

Dial up internet service makes daily pictures impossible - 1 hour to upload one picture and it also ties up our phone service. We will post pictures once a week when we go to town and have lunch at our internet cafe where high speed wireless is available.

We went to Oskar Cemetery (25 miles one way) to put flowers on the graves of K's father, brother and great grandparents. We had dinner at the Loading Zone in Lake Linden (good pizza).
