Sat. Sept. 7 Trip Diary Awake at 5:40, left at 7:40' mostly ready to go the night before. Forgot how much like mountains the hills north of Sault Ste. Marie look. arrived at Pancake Bay at 4:15
is warm, sun warmed over sand. I forgot how much I like to listen to waves lap
the shore. Inland lakes make no such sound, but great lakes and oceans do-long
slow shallow waves lapping at the edge with elegant fingers. After sundown, the sparkling red lights appeared on the horizon--the wind farm.
I have mixed feelings about that, nothing is without consequences. We watched fish jump. Randy saw them first, I was playing guitar.
There were jumping clear out of the water, their white fish bellies on display.
I laughed hysterically and I'm not sure why. It was a wonderful thing to see. PS. (September 26th) Yes, I’m back from my annual long holiday. This time,
I actually kept a journal, with the aid of my android tablet and a free app
called graffiti that converts block-printing to text (very short learning curve,
especially since its a port of a Palm Pilot app I used extensively many years ago).
So this years holiday pics will come with on-site journal entries (with or without edits)
PPS. Reading this journal entry makes me realize that was the warmest water and temps
I would experience the entire holiday. Bare feet!!! Well, you’ll see.
PPPS. Supper was at Salzburger Hof, an amazing Austrian Restaurant on the lake.
This is where we always have dinner on the 1st night, I swear they have our order
noted before we arrive. Spaetzle for me, Hungarian Goulash, Saurkraut for him.
Chocolate Explosion to go so we can enjoy at our campsite.
