By sg/Milford on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 08:49 am:

troll with connections, there have been NW airlines at the airport. Not sure where they fly in from and this plane was at the airport a couple nights ago. Maybe it's Ed from Detroit. I see they are having some rain up there. Most of the vehicles are gone from the Ramada.

By curious on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 09:34 am:

Spectacular photo....who took the picture? Whenever I stand on the shores of Gitchee Gumee I'm reminded of my parents who passed over many years ago. She always gives me a quiet solace when she is quiet, and an open eyed wonder when she is fierce.

happy in God's Country.

How are the blueberries coming along? Will they be ready to pick by mid-August? How many miles between Baraga and the Houghton/Hancock bridge?

By Tom on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 06:46 pm:

That's NOT a Seaplane - - it's a Floatplane ! !
I flew twin-engine PBY 5A & 6A Catalina patrol
planes in the Pacific Theater during WW11.The
seaplane has a hull and wingtip floats for
stability when on the water
See www.pby.com for more info/pics/etc

By Dave of Mohawk on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 07:42 pm:

Tom; You are absolutely correct, although I have a seaplane rating on my pilot license and the FAA does not specify sea or float. My license says "land and sea" which entitles me to fly floats or sea. If you want to be even more specific the floats in the photo are amphibious floats.

By Georgie, MO on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 08:32 pm:

What a beautiful picture! We just learned today of the passing of a family friend, Dortha Gainey, in Enid,OK. So to her memory and that of other family members... May God grant you eternal rest. We love you and will miss you all.

By Tom on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 09:28 pm:

Hei Hei Dave - -
I always get a bone in my foot when i hear float
planes called seaplanes even if they are amphib-
ious ! If you ever have a chance to fly SEAPLANES
you will never forget those great flights !!!!
When I was separated from Service I received a
Commercial,single & multi engine, land & sea,
unlimited horsepower license.I started Tech in
the fall 0f '46 and never did use it.
(see Pasty.com Archives/2000/December 13/14)

Thanks for your interest!

By Donna on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 09:39 pm:

Wonderful picture. So Serene! The Native Americans call passing away, "walking on". Such beautiful words....Blessings to all. Love and Light.

By NKR from Indiana on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 09:43 pm:

Like to remember my father and mother who brought me up to Copper Harbor in the late 1950's. It was beautiful then and looks just as beautiful now from the pictures.

By smn/Clearwater on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 09:44 pm:

I surely hope all you Yoopers get to see the Blue Moon tonight. The sky is very cloudy and overcast down here on the west coast of Florida and we cannot see it. Maybe someone could get some pictures tonight and post for those of us less fortunate.

By flyin troll on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 10:04 pm:

Land or Sea....ASEL/ASES.....with commerical privledges on both.........and it is an amphib.........

By still flyin on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 10:05 pm:

By Lowell MO. on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 10:57 pm:

If I remember correctly the North American Natives belive that when they pass on they walk the Milky Way to their Happy Hunting Ground.

By Margaret, Amarillo TX on Saturday, July 31, 2004 - 11:22 pm:

Here in West TX it is out! The moon is lighting up the sky in my back yard. Unfortunately, I do not have the right kind of camera to get a flick. By the way, checked the bridge cam and it does not have the moon tonight.
