Once More, Once

One last Grand Marais piece: The symposium up there takes place in a bay. Just outside, along Lake Superior's south shore, you are allowed a view of one end of Picture Rocks National Sea Shore. The flat land in the foreground, it turns out, is a major nesting area for the piping plover.An interesting entry on the sign asks that kites not be flown in the area as the chicks may think them a predator and stop feeding.

I discovered the area when I climbed the dune behind out motel. I also discovered what had to have been one of the earliest attempts at using wind power to generate electricity.

Finally a two part quiz:

1. Who are these men and how are they related?

2. From where did I steal the title of today's blog?

Paddle safe...

I'd say Buffy the Vampire Slayer but I'm sort of doubting it. . .

That is so far off I don't even know which question it addresses :)

2) Count Basie - April in Paris
1) No idea how those two guys are related.

Richard said...

Sounds like Hemmingway, kind look like him too.

Silbs said...

I taught my daughter well. Basie says this at the end of April in Paris (a classic) and the band then repeats the big finish...twice.

They do look like, but aren't Mr. H.

Ken and JB are related thru the link of the yellow hat......

It's a secrete organization that meets to have pizza and beer behind rec halls all over the world

It's a migratory group...there are many more out there.....these two just happened to get photographed not on the water....or imbibing or otherwise busy with the business of teaching "The true Way of The Kayak"

Best Wishes
