With the milder weather weíve been experiencing here in the Keweenaw, E. Neil Harri has had some good flyover weather lately. Which means we get some great views that heís shared, starting with the lighthouse in Eagle Harbor. You can see sheís a little iced in, but that red roof sure stands out against the white surrounding her. Next Neil snapped a shot of the Gull Rock Lighthouse. Just a little ice encircling her. Can you imagine what it must have been like to be in residence there, during a good winter storm?

Neilís last two photos are of the Tug, Clyde S VanEnkevort and the barge, Erie Trader, as they are rounding Keweenaw Point. If I didnít know better, Iíd swear it was a beautiful summer day that Neil snapped these two shots, with the water so blue and not an ice flow in sight. Interesting to see this perspective of the tug and barge working together like that.

For our video viewing pleasure, we have the Tug and Barge Clyde S. VanEnkevort / Erie Trader up bound in an ice filled Soo Lock Canal back in January, 2019. Thatís really some ice all around, both in the Canal and frozen onto the barge.

Great pictures and video! My Mom worked at Eagle
Harbor Light house restaurant back in the mid to
late 30's. She was paid $5 a month including room
and board. Her best tipper was a doctor who would
leave her twenty five cents. Most tips were a lot
less. She even spent a night in the light house.
She was friends with the light house daughter.

N-n-n-ice set! I hope the furnace is working.

Great pics Neil and the video is really cool too!!
First glance I just thought that was a 1000'

Very nice pictures. I agree Alex, that bow cabin looks like it's a bit chilly.

Here's a picture of Gull Rock from sometime ago, very clearly showing the lower water level then.

Jean Simmet (Calumetahmeek),
How cool about your Mom working at the lighthouse restaurant! Was it actually located in the lighthouse itself or next door? She was blessed to have that job in the late '30's - a little money and a place to stay with meals.

By Jean Simmet (Calumetahmeek) on Friday, January 15, 2021 - 09:49 am:

The restaurant was separate from the light house.
We were UP there one summer and we ran into the
owners that owned the restaurant at the time Mom
worked there. Lots of memories were told.

That must have been fun to chat with the owners of the restaurant and hear all the old stories!
