The beach in Eagle River 8 years ago. The speck in the water is a timber from an old shipwreck on the beach. This year the beach extends almost all the way to the wreck, with the water level down so far.

Good Morning. Tried to get pictures of lightning bugs last night but only got mosquito bites. Have a good weekend everyone.

Dennis Kemper sent in this photo of the Nina Tall Ship, docked in Hancock, at the Ramada Inn. He said they'll be having tours today and Saturday.
Here are the particulars about the tours, taken from the Daily Mining Gazette: While in port, the general public is invited to visit the ship for walk-aboard, self-guided tours. The hours of operation will be from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. every day the ship is in port. The charges are $5 for adults, $4 for Seniors and $3 for students 5-18. Children 4 and under are free. No reservations are necessary.

Good morning! Glad it's Friday, but wish I didn't have to work tomorrow morning. Going to be HOT here for the next few days. Possibility of triple digits on Saturday. Sounds like a good day to be in the pool.

Deb S., Come on, it's a good day to be in LAKE SUPERIOR, isn't that what you mean?

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, July 6, 2007 - 09:51 am:

Uncle Chuck, If I could, you bet that's where I'd be. That's what I love about summers UP there. No matter which direction you drive on a hot day, you can be at Lake Superior in a matter of minutes. If it's cold in the lake, you lay out on the hot sand until you can't take the heat and go back in the water, time and time again. What a great way to live.
I'M stuck with the pool......

Hey Deb, you can jump into Lake Superior after the wedding of your son next week. There you go, have your bonfire on the beach that night at Eagle Harbor. Wouldn't that be neat if all of you jumped into Lake Superior? That would make memorable & funny moments of the wedding day to remember.

By Cheryl Rozman (Cotton) on Friday, July 6, 2007 - 10:16 am:

Early congratulations to any couples getting married tomorrow on 7-07-07. And Happy 17th Wedding Anniversary to my daughter Lisa & her husband Jeff tomorrow. Boy, how time flies!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mary, I hate to be a nudge, but it's the Nina, not the Pinta (or are all the other posts wrong?).

Mary says: No, Bob, you're correct, I'm misinformed on my ship names! Yikes, my high school history teacher wouldn't be impressed, now would he? I actually had several people catch that goof and email me about it. Good to keep me on my toes! :->

By Happy to be in the U.P. (Lahelo) on Friday, July 6, 2007 - 11:55 am:

We are going to go and see the Nina on Sunday! It will be another upper peninsula experience to do.

By Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Friday, July 6, 2007 - 02:02 pm:

I just received this different view of the Nina, from Robert C. Wetton (RCW). It's from the Houghton side of the Portage! Thanks, RCW!

Where along the beach is the shipwreck I would love to go see it.

Thank you

My Grandson is on a Big Ship this Summer for a learning trip out of New Zealand and Tonga. I am so excited for him. What a wonderful opportunity for a 15 year old.
We are having very hot weather here in San Jose. I'm sure we are on high fire alert, as we need to start to conserve on our water. Everything is drying up.
