We sure have had a lot of fog this year. I don't know if it has actually been more than normal, but it seems like it has been. Last week while driving to work Pete's Island in Grand Portage Bay looked really mysterious as it tried to show itself from behind the fog. I loved the combination of the island, fog, clouds and blue sky. I simply could not resist stopping and taking a picture of the scene!

Last week after we picked strawberries at Belluz Farms we stopped along the edge of this beautiful canola field just outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario. It's funny... we go to Thunder Bay quite frequently throughout the year and I don't remember ever seeing these vibrant yellow fields before. I'm sure this isn't the first year they've been like this, so it's probably just a case of me never driving by when they've been in bloom before. In any case, we were shocked by the huge fields of yellow and how beautiful they were. Definitely not something you see in northeast Minnesota :-)

The Grand Portage - Isle Royale Transportation Line provides passenger service from Grand Portage, MN to Isle Royale National Park in Michigan. They run two ferries, the Sea Hunter III (pictured on the left) which runs day trips to Windigo, and the Voyageur II (on the right) which circles the entire island and makes stops at various points along the way. The Voyageur II spends the night at Rock Harbor, making the round-trip of Isle Royale a two-day affair. If you'd like to find out more information about making a trip to Isle Royale via one of these ferries, you can check out Grand Portage - Isle Royale Transportation Line's website at http://www.isleroyaleboats.com.

Here is one more photo of the moose calves from last week. This picture of them looking out at me from the brush is too cute. I couldn't resist sharing it! I hope everyone had a great weekend! The weather sure was beautiful. Perfect for outdoor adventures!
