It's tough on the deer as winter drags on. Even with the milder weather the toll of the long winter has to be very hard on them. A bit of corn is always welcome. Feeding deer in a proper manner is important. You spread it out in little piles so they don't fight over one pile and of course don't exchange disease. The CWD is not in the north of course but there is no need to risk anything as there are other conditions.

Before the Bayfield Inn it was the Hotel Bayfield which was on the waterfront.I know a couple who spent their honeymoon there in 1959. It burned in the 1960's and not quite sure the exact date? I had a postcard of the fire but can't find it.From my postcard collection is the hotel,lounge and dining room. Does anybody know the date of the fire? Please leave a comment.

What do you do with a vast frozen bay in February? People are starting to get antsy after a long winter. Some have so called cabin fever. You need to get some exercise and fresh air.
Something unique and different? Take a walk across this massive frozen expanse. Lit by candlelight and the hopefully clear star filled sky. And it's Valentine's Day! For details, start time and conditions visit the Book Across the Bay website: http://www.batb.org/

Things look pretty quiet in the 1950's down at City Dock, the ferry boat Nichevo took only a few cars at a time. There was not alot of rushing going on there. Even the name of the ferry echos that feeling.The most common word in the Russian language is Nichevo. It just means Don't worry,let things take their course. Or quite simply it doesn't matter. If you think about times today it's pretty good advice otherwise alot of stress may be the result. We can't control everything.

All the cold weather has created some thick ice. Right now the ice caves are open. Access is from Meyers Beach area just off of HWY 13 North of Bayfield.
To make sure conditions are still safe call the ICE LINE #1-715-779-3398.
Take some warm clothing! Nothing worse then wind chill and nipped ears.
