It is a 14 year tradition that has been anticipated by many all summer. The Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival. It is coming up this weekend, August 21 and 22 at Barker's Island in Superior and involves several people from spectators to teams to volunteers. With this blog you can be informed on where to park, what roads will be busiest and where you can grab a shuttle to the FREE event.
We took advantage of the high humidity on Sunday morning that warmed Duluth's famous Lakewalk and took a walk. (I'm still unable to run until this Wednesday). We were just behind the row of hotels in the canal and something caught my eye moving on Lake Superior that was very unusual.
I know I wasn't the only one today wearing a jacket and mowing my lawn. I saw several other people bundled up and clipping grass today too. After yesterday's near 90 degree day, that lake roared it's ugly head and chilled us pretty good.
This spring's constant back-and-forth between 30 degree and 60 degree days is making it seem like it is taking forever for spring to finally show up. Just how far off from average are we from seeing our lawns and trees greening up for the season?
The shipping season has begun in Duluth, but we have yet to see the first 'saltie' of the year come into the harbor. If you can guess when the moment will arrive, you could win prizes from the Duluth Seaway Port Authority and Visit Duluth.
Mother nature apparently doesn't realize that our 2015 shipping season has started since we're expecting 3-5 inches of snow tonight through Thursday, but the first laker, the John G. Munson departed the harbor on Monday to kick it off!
People hoping to see the Apostle Islands Ice Caves this season had a very short window. Unseasonably warm temperatures and forecasted strong winds for Monday night have prompted park officials to close the caves for the season.
I can't believe how many ice fishing houses I've seen out on Lake Superior lately. Especially right out from 21st Avenue East, it's like a little fishing village. With Spring just two weeks away, the U.S. Coast Guard warns the ice anglers.
