Mary Schei enjoyed a trip back home for a vacation recently and found some new construction happened at Brunette Park on the Gay/Lac La Belle Road. So the story goes like this. In October 2019, the waves and wind took down the big white pine tree that was on the shore at Brunette Park. It laid there for a time, until someone decided to make a hut out of it’s dry, dead branches. From what I hear, the first hut lasted most of last summer, but was then actually burned down by “vandals”, but it looks like this year the hut is back on the shore again and the person who built it said he plans to make it a yearly tradition now. It takes him about four hours to build. It’s a neat looking hut and could come in handy if you need some shade while out there for a picnic. You can see what remains of the trunk of the tree in the first photo, too.

The bottom photo is a beauty. Mary snapped that sunset from the Dreamland dock in Bootjack. With pictures like these, she sure took home some wonderful memories of her visit back in her hometown.

Copper Harbor has their first weather buoy and Steve Brimm over at Steve Brimm Photography was able to ride along with the folks who were putting it in place in the Harbor. That means that we get to be on board, too!

Just add a tarp or Buffalo hide and you will have a
sweat lodge.

My first thought on the "Brunette Park Hut":

Whut, the Discovery Channel's …

Maybe in the depth of Winter, but now?


After they meet in the assigned locale, the partners must build a shelter and find water and food."

Nice, but what a tease. Where's the Brunette?
