There’s an island out there somewhere

And Canananada too. It’s usually on the right. Canananada, that is. The island is in the middle and belongs to the USA. The land on the left (that you also can’t see) is also USA owned.

We’ve had a lot of this kind of weather this trip. Foggy, that is. This is a good thing because it means it isn’t all that hot here (usually). In fact it was so chilly this afternoon that yer fav-o-rite blahgger actually turned the propane heater up in the moomincabin.

One of the things I love about fog is fog horns. When I was a little kid here, the fog horn was a stationary device out in the channel somewhere, probably at the “cement block” but not sure. Wherever it was, I LOVED snuggling in my little bunk bed listening to the fog horn. Nowadays all of the freighters have their own fog horns and when it is foggy here in the Saint Marys River system, you can hear a freighter’s approach via its fog horn.

I always say our beach is on Lake Superior but technically it is on the Saint Marys River. It just looks like we’re on the big lake because we look out onto a LOT of water. The freighters probably don’t blow their fog horns out on the lake but once they get into the river system, it becomes important to blow them. The freighters communicate with each other via marine traffic comm systems but they need to let small botes know something BIG is in the area. I still love listening to the fog horns.

Tonight was supposed to be a veggie taco night. It turned out to be Mother’s March on Leftovers instead. The refrigimitator was full and it was time. We’ll do the tacos tomorrow night.

“I before E, except after C or when sounding like A as in neighbor or weigh”… Or freighter 🐽
