It's been too long since I posted any pictures. So guess what I did this morning! I biked around (with both hands on the bars) and took some pictures of what I thought captures da Harbor at present. It's August 9th -- the peak of our summer.
Today is a bit cooler and gray, so I really didn't see as many people roaming, but I found some fitting images. They are displayed in the order I shot them.
This year's common tansy grows with last year's
My favorite rose bushes by the Welcome Center are turning to hips already
(I sniff them every time I go by)
The mint is flowering
A view of the new lookout on Brockway's Nose
Um, apples in August?
The Lighthouse Ferry cruises toward the gap
Kayak tour life vests hang out to dry
Geese and ducks float toward the water walkway
The Isle Royale parking lot is packed with cars
(Another reason I go there in May!)
The playground fund is up to $60,000!
Bike and canoe rentals are in full swing
A man checks his iphone with Brickside's wifi connection
(This made me laugh...)
I could have gone farther out of town, but a few sprinkles fell on me, so I headed back. I had enough fun for the day.
Oh, but here is the best part. I checked on the jewelweed plants to see if the pods were ready.
Thanks to everyone who introduced themself to me this summer as a reader of my blog. I am writing for you, you know!
