Happy New Year! and welcome to a new feature for 2011, as we showcase a different "Legend of the Pasty Cam" to start each month from our 2011 Pasty Cam Calendar. The year kicks off with a ghostly scene captured by Donn de Yampert at Escanaba. What a timely image, as temps this week in the U.P. have been up and down, producing this effect all around the shores of the Peninsula.

Donn de Yampert has been a contributor since the early days of the Pasty Cam, with so many memorable photos over the years. The Ghost Ship is January's view in the 2011 Calendar, which is still available (with-or-without pasties), and each month's picture is suitable for framing. Proceeds from the calendar this year help support Omega House in Houghton.

We had some housekeeping to do while changing over the model year of the Pasty Cam, thus the late start with today's installment. But you slept in anyway, right?

Have a great 2011 :o)

The 2011 calendar is the best ever. I see Donn de Yampert has another one later in the year.

Does anybody remember a movie called Ghost Ship? That was one creepy movie to me.

Capt. Paul: I posted two pictures on the other page.

Happy New Year to all Pastycamers. The fog picture reminds me of during my short sailing days aboard the CRISPIN OGLEBAY we were downbound for Toledo and the fog set in as we passed Port Huron. I went off watch then but as I woke the next morning to the eerie feeling on not moving forward I stepped out on the deck and noticed the combined efforts of Captain Koski and 2nd Engineer Carl Makkinnen we were anchored in the St Clair River. After obtaining my first cup o joe I looked ashore and saw people driving real slow in their '55 Galixies as they approached the small white church all enveloped in the fog as shown in todays picture. One of the many memories a Yooper boy has of sailing freighters 50 years ago.

And what an amazing memory you have, Eddie Fitz. I always enjoy
your vivid stories of your sailing days.
