Athena's campfire.

It was a fun evening at Athena's campfire.

Athena tending her first campfire.

All was going well until this approaching storm broke up the outdoor activity.

Unusually large apiary for this region.

This apiary is larger than usual for this area.

Apiary complete with electric fence to keep out bears.

Lurking... and waiting for lunch.

Daddy Long-Legs spider.  For additional information see here.

The garden(s) continued to grow and bloom while we were away.



Three days on Duluth's North Shore.

Choice campsite at the "D&D Campground". We always enjoy our visit with our Duluth friends. This choice site is their front yard and this is the view(s) they see everyday.

One of the 3-5 ship we saw pass each day.

Great Lake Ship.

Three masted 'four sail' ship.

When seen together the sailing ship seems fairly large. Ok here is a guess. Based on the person on deck being an estimated 6 feet. I make the boat length to be 48 feet. Any photo analysts in the viewing audience?

"Little Miss Daisy"

"Little Miss Daisy Clover"

A teaching moment.

A special thanks to D & D for a fun few days.  As always.
