End of the Fall

November is nearing a end and the Bayfield Harbor is quiet and empty. The Thanksgiving Week had holiday vacationers around town. Now a bit of a lull and then comes Christmas. Santa will arrive on the Ferry boat. Shops are open for holiday shoppers on weekends.

Port Superior/Pikes Bay boats all put to bed

All the boats have been put to bed for the winter as a storm approaches for this coming weekend. It has been a very nice fall and perhaps even longer then usual. The holidays are next on the list for Bayfield Activities. Soon Santa will arrive on the Ferry Boat. Deer hunters will have snow for tracking this weekend. I'll be out and about Thanksgiving week taking more pictures. I've been lax with my camera since the fall colors went away.

Ashland Wisconsin's last remaining ore dock.

The removal of the last remaining Ore Dock in Ashland Wisconsin has begun. It's a passing of a era of industry. Ashland is mostly tourism,services and retail now. The city looks great with the new improved Lakeshore drive and a nice Main Street. There is now a Walgreen's and a new Super Walmart. There is a transition taking place. Like most small towns in America right now they would love some high paying jobs but wouldn't we all. Overall I think Ashland looks very good. It has the wonderful location on the Chequamegon Bay. The old Ore Dock will be missed.
