|TRUCK FULL OF BAYING HOUNDS|
Sunday, 9:30 AM. 60 degrees F, wind W, calm to light. The sky is cloudless. The humidity is down and the barometer is up. It is actually chilly this morning!
When we went out for fish fry Friday evening to The Village Inn in Cornucopia we were greeted at the entrance by this pickup truck full of baying bear hounds. Maybe the bears were in the bar, having a beer. This is the practice season for bear hunting, and hunters are running their dogs in the woods, getting them used to the idea of trailing bears. Come to think of it, it gets the bears in practice as well.
The annual Bayfield Festival of the Arts is this weekend, and Memorial Park and the waterfront are very busy. The 180' Coast Guard Cutter Sundew was at the City Dock giving tours yesterday, and attracted a lot of attention. She was decommissioned in 2004 after 60 years of service on the Great Lakes. It was then donated to the City of Duluth as a tourist attraction In 2009 it was purchased by a group of private individuals, restored, and is now sailed by its former seamen and other volunteers. This is its second visit to Bayfield.
We got most of the remaining plants planted on the landscape project yesterday morning. As soon as the builder completes some work and moves scaffolding and some trash we can finish it completely and I can show you some before and after photos.
