Android Phone issues!

There are some folks who cannot see the cameras on their Android phones.

The problem is usually caused by a default Samsung browser. Please download any browser from Google Play. There are lot's of browser options for free that include the ability to read Flash.

Try several until you find one that works.

History - Tiffany Window (Three Ships)

Duluth has always had a deep nautical heritage. There are many displays of this with one of them being the Tiffany stained glass windows in the First Presbyterian Church located in the heart of Duluth. Build in 1869, the building is a display of craftsmanship and beauty established long ago.

Mariners have always relied on God in the storms of the sea and the storms of life.

Waves and Wind!

While the waves were a nice size (4-6Ft) yesterday, once the Gales of November arrive in a few weeks, it is not unusual to have twice that size.  This photo from last November is a good example of what to expect.

One of the unusual phenomena that occurs during the worst storms is that people love to flock to the lake shore to experience the power of Lake Superior as soon as they hear on the radio to stay away.

Go figure! I thinks it's built into everyone!

Light Transitions - Duluth Lakewalk

The transition from day to night takes about an hour this time of year. The Duluth Lakewalk is one of those special places where water, light, earth, wildlife, and weather come together to make a stunning scene. This 400 image timelapse captures the mood as night falls across the landscape.

Light Transition - Blatnik Bridge

The John A. Blatnik Bridge carries Interstate I-35 and U.S. Highway 53 over the Saint Louis Bay. The bridge is a mile and a half long and rises up nearly 120 feet above the water. It was dedicated on December 2, 1961, and was renamed for Congressman John Blatnik on September 24, 1971. The bridge replaced the nearby Interstate Bridge also pictured here which was a swinging toll bridge that carried both automobile and rail traffic. The Interstate Bridge is now used as a fishing pier. .

Autumn Colors

In case you don't get up the North Shore to look at the fall colors, here is a 6 min video that I took while driving down Heartbreak Hill Road, one of the inland trails near Tofte.

In order to get stable video, I took the props of Skeeter (one of the drones) and held him up through the cars sunroof while we drove down the road.

Enjoy the colors and turn up your volume: music is by Mary Beth Carlson -
