While the ferries in the Carolinas aren't running anymore they certainly will be running as normal this weekend in Bayfield. No hurricane warnings for the West Channel between Bayfield and Madeline Island. Count your blessings that you don't live on the Eastern Seaboard.It will be a lovely weekend in Bayfield and area. How fortunate we are in Wisconsin.

It's August in Bayfield, the Tent shows are in full mode and it's peak sailing time. Plenty of visitors in town including a few bears roaming around. A cousin biking on Madeline Island spotted a bear about 30 yards from her. That is the stuff of good vacation conversations when you go home. I was over to my other favorite place, Grand Marais Minnesota. Just across the finger of the big lake. Nothing better then driving near the shore of Lake Superior no matter which side of the lake you happen to be on. Coming back on HWY 13 toward Bayfield I stopped and shot this sunset.

I know there is a shipwreck in front of Seagull Bay Motel. There has been a boat anchored there all day? Does anybody know what may be happening there? Are they diving on the wreck? Are they salvaging some parts of it? I don't recall the name of the wreck but it's a smaller ship.If you're interested in some historic ship wrecks click on the link below:
