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.

Cleaning Up The Sailboat & Getting Her Back In The Water After 8 Years [VIDEO]

Quite a while ago, I parked my 1981 AMF Sunbird Sailboat at the cabin.  I couldn't store it indoors, so I did my best to tarp it.  I've been meaning to find time to get it in the water over the years, but this year I've made it a priority.  I was a little worried to see what kind of shape it would be in after unveiling the tarp.
