Canal Park is a cool place!

Fire and Ice!

December Sunrises are stunning displays of God's creations.  What better time view it then below zero on the shores of Lake Superior.

I thought I would try a quick snapshot with my IPhone from the Lakewalk.

Safe Shelter - Whitefish Point

Pier B Yurt Timelapse 2016

How to build a Yurt in 2 minutes!
Pier B Resort constructed a Yurt over the weekend while the Pier B harborcam recorded a timelapse of the three day process.

Cold Weather Beauty

With cold weather settling in for the week, there should be some great views of ice covered boats, sea smoke rising and incredible sunrises.  With air temperatures barely rising above zero deg F this week, the winter beauty of Lake Superior will be on full display.

Hopefully we don't get any cameras shutting down for cold weather protection, but, it is possible.

Happy boat watching.
