Lake Superior

Earlier this month we spent a few days at Bob's Cabins on Lake Superior (4 mi. south of Two Harbors, MN). It has been a family tradition for us to take the grandkids there. Even though Anna is a teenager and there are no amenities at Bob's, they still enjoy throwing rocks in the Lake.

There always seem to be some kayakers staying at Bob's Cabins.

Mergansers maybe? I saw very few birds (not even gulls) at close range during these few days on the Lake.

Perhaps one reason for the few birds near the shore. What's the point of these machines?

Even the crow did not appreciate the jet ski.
