The "Mist of Avalon" visits Grand Portage
It's the annual Rendezvous Days Celebration and Pow-Wow here in Grand Portage this weekend. This is our biggest weekend of the summer and there are lots of fun and cool things to see and do. One of the highlights this year is the tall ship "Mist of Avalon" is here and the Voyageur II ferry is making repeated short trips across the bay so visitors can see the ship up close. Once the weekend is over the ship will be moving on to Duluth for the Tall Ships Festival. This evening I made it onto the Voyageur II for one of the trips out to see the ship up close. It really is a beautiful vessel. Someday I would like to make it down to Duluth for the Tall Ships Festival to see the wide variety of ships that are on display, as they really are fascinating to see up close.
