Catching Up - Float Plane Obsession while in Grand Marais

Houghton MI (Clouds and Sun High 75 Low 55)

Now that the Olympics are over we plan on doing some sightseeing in the Houghton area but staying up so late (ends at midnight here) gets us up late and the day is gone before we know it. This does allow us though to catch up on some blog entries of our recent stay in Grand Marais MN.

As we mentioned before Bob got obsessed with capturing a good picture of the float plane that was offering tours of the area from the air. The plane took off in Grand Marais Bay right next to where our RV was parked. He missed a lot of Kodak moments when we did not have a camera or he couldn't get the zoom at the right setting.

After 5 weeks there he did manage to get a shot or two worth reporting here and a couple of hundred in the recycle bin never to seen again. Here is the plane coming in for a landing in front of us while we were at the Dragonboat Festival.

Here is the float plane airborne with the lighthouse and sailboat.

Here is the float plane with the other lighthouse and a boat.

There are a "few" more in our photos from our visit to Grand Marais that have been uploaded to in the Grand Marais set.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo
