It was a hot day eight years ago and Jonathan Hopper captured this view of the marsh near Boston Location following a day of heavy rain.

Not many days left now to make your bid for the silent auction items and support Still Waters Assisted Living Community.

Morning All!

Did anyone happen to catch how bright the full moon was last night? Was outside last night, chatting with a friend...when she looked at her watch and realized that it was almost midnight. Couldn't believe it, because it wasn't even dark out...that full moon was just lighting up the sky :)

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Wednesday, August 9, 2006 - 09:00 am:

Sounds like the same moon I saw! Big & orange when it first made it's appearance. Planning to come UP to Aura Friday for a long weekend, including the Harbor Haus and the Ambassador.

I finsished reffing a soccer match just at dusk.
the ride back to hubbell was beautiful with the full
moon coming up over the hill on torch lake.

FYI the Perseid meteor showers peak this weekend
hope for some clear skies for some great shooting

Llamamama, Hubby is on his way home from Ohio...he just switched trailers with the east coast driver. Guess what the east coast driver gave him to bring home? Vermont blueberries! Thought it was funny...because when I think of Vermont, I think of maple syrup. Since you are the blueberry expert, how does Vermont compare with the other states, cropwise?
Just hope Jim doesn't eat all those blueberries between Ohio and home...could have sworn he was talking with a full mouth when I talked to him on the phone, though. Hmmmm....

By lz (Llamamama) on Wednesday, August 9, 2006 - 10:26 am:

Sur5er, here I am up to ear lobes in blueberries and you guys talk blueberries. Just kidding! According the US Highbush Council, Vermont has had a wicked productive year! Busted the records. Of course what does a state the size of Vermont have - 2 bushes? And what is hubby doing eating those imports? I've got at least 1800 pounds of real Michigan blueberries and we are still picking. (Could not resist some good natured inter-state ribbing!).

Bob...Who won the soccer match in the Copper Country?? It is a very nice sport..not too rough.

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Wednesday, August 9, 2006 - 11:13 am:

My son who is a police officer played soccer during grade school, high school, and college. He has been hurt many times, soccer when it is played to win is very competative and sometimes very rough. I refereed once and had all these little kids kicking my shins. Never again. The kids were in grade school and really enthusiatic in the game.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Wednesday, August 9, 2006 - 11:24 am:

You don't have to be on the playing field to get your shins kicked. I teach reading to kids who have difficulty learning to read in the regular classroom, and, sitting at a small table with 1 or 2 kids at a time, I get kicked in the shins all day long!

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Wednesday, August 9, 2006 - 11:26 am:

Marsha, My daughter taught first grade and would complain about the same thing. The she became the fifth grade teacher, I say she was promoted.

Just got back a week ago from IL, MI, UP and WI. What a chance to give the grandkids a look at how we grew up. First inside of MI we got sweet cherries and they were to die for. We don't get 'em like that here. Then bought a cherry pie in Traverse and again in Door county. The MI one was by far my husband's favorite. Had a pasty too. Got back and low and behold, the supermarket had blueberries, from Traverse. Miracles will never end. Kids got to go in Huron, Michigan and Superior too. Vacation done.

How is the fire in the CC? This mornings local paper (LSJ) suggested that about 100 acres were burned off.

By dlp (Babyseal) on Wednesday, August 9, 2006 - 03:39 pm:

Sur5er, I hope you enjoy your blueberries as much as I enjoy the blackberries we picked last night. Made a batch of blackberry jam (no seeds in the jam) and a blackberry pie for my hubby. Boy, so far being on vacation is a lot of work. But a different kind of work:) Tomorrow I hope to pack up the pickup, the dog, the hubby and my son and hide away for the last few days of my vacation watching Lake Superior and her fabulous sunsets. Love being a yooper!

Has anyone been following Tom Cook's Superior Adventure Blog? There are some great photos and his narrative is good.

By Fran in GA (Francesinga) on Wednesday, August 9, 2006 - 07:13 pm:

I saw that beautiful moon last night when I went to get Sami(my cat)in for the night. Had to stand and look at it for while.

The pictures today were pretty,especially the rainbow.I did enjoy seeing the Boston Loc swamp tho,it is just up the hill from where I grew up.

By Inwis (Inwis) on Wednesday, August 9, 2006 - 09:42 pm:

Kathy P., where do we find the blog?

By Ken ja Mimi from da UP (Kenjamimi) on Wednesday, August 9, 2006 - 09:58 pm:

My calenders say tonight is the full moon. Last night was really bright, as was mentioned. It'll be a little later tonight. Nice cool breeze comin' in the window as we read about the blueberries and the blackberries. Hmmm. Our thimbleberry jam jar went empty this morning. :o(
'Course Dobber's Pasty shop has it in Esky. :o)

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Wednesday, August 9, 2006 - 10:32 pm:

Tom Cook's blog is on the Nature Conservancy site. I enjoyed catching up with it last night also. He just finished hiking from St. Ignace to Copper Harbor to raise money for the Nature Conservancy.
