Donna MacIntosh, might just be our roving Baraga Country photographer, as she's always bringing us interesting photos from all around Keweenaw Bay. Today she takes us to the L'Anse waterfront, where they proudly fly the American flag along with the Michigan flag and a POW flag, to complete the trio. I know there's a name for this type of flag holder, but can't quite put my finger on it right now, so perhaps someone in our viewing audience can help me out with that. I know they're a common configuration in mariner settings, such as this in the waterfront park.

From there, Donna headed back around the bay and ended up on the opposite shore, looking at the mariners memorial on the shores of Lake Superior. Very nice tribute to sailors that have lost their lives. Quite the view from here, too, with Pequaming on the Peninsula off in the distance. Thanks for reporting, Donna M.

You'll like it,Deb. My father grew up there and we still have plenty
of relatives in the area.

Mary, is the top photo flagpole a 'nautical yardarm' pole? The 'U.S. Stars and Stripes' always make for beautiful photos!

Old Glory makes great photography.

A good reminder to thank a vet and currently serving troops for their service to America!

And the Mariner's Memorial brings to mind the recent 'win' by Grand Marais to help rebuild their harbor. Thanks to all who voted!
