The Hjørdis & Scenic Airplane Rides

The Hjørdis

You’ve been skirting the shore of Lake Superior for two hours to get here. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to get out on the lake? Feel what it’s like to be on all that water? Reverse things and view the shoreline from the lake? An easy way to do this is aboard the 50-foot schooner, the Hjørdis, sailing out of North House Folk School on the harbor. Schooner outings are offered daily and include an overview about sailing, a tour of the harbor, and weather permitting, a sail into the big lake. The Hjørdis sails from late May through early October and is used for sailing classes, sunset sails and full moon sails, too. Stop by North House or get details online. Visit Website

Happy Fish Pic. Weekend All! ... See MoreSee Less

Tonight's full moon was a Blue Moon, which means that it was the second full moon in one month. I went down to the Grand Marais harbor to shoot it rising behind the lighthouse. There was lots of activity going on by the lighthouse tonight. I hope you got to see the full moon rise tonight, but if you didn't I hope my shot evokes a bit of emotion for you. To get the full experience of what it felt like in Grand Marais, play a little Phil Collins In the Air Tonight. The cover band in the downtown park was playing that song as the moon rose over the big lake. We could hear it echo across the water and fill the air.
