Flowering Magnolia

We woke up to 20 inches of snow this morning, April 14, and it’s still snowing. We’re supposed to get snow the rest of the day into tomorrow.

Tall Ships in Sturgeon Bay

IMG_0306The day was so hot and humid that you could hardly breathe when the tall ships came into Sturgeon Bay via the canal that links the bay to Lake Michigan. To get to the canal I had to walk down a dusty dirt road for awhile because of the number of other people who wanted to see the ships come into the docks. Then you walk through a meadow owned by the Nature Conservancy to where a concrete wall and a walk provides a wonderful place to view the canal first proposed in 1870. From there you can see the ships coming and going.

Viking Tall Ship

photographs by Ethel Mortenson and Thomas Davis

The tall ships came to Sturgeon Bay from Algoma on the way to Green Bay on August 3rd. One of the ships was the Draken Harald Hårfagre, the world’s largest Viking tall ship. The tall ships are going on to Duluth from Green Bay, but the Draken will not be with them because of charges by the U.S. government for sailing on the Great Lakes. Not enough funding was available to keep the Draken on the Great Lakes tour. This is a shame. There should be a solution. We’ll post more photos of the ships tomorrow. The ships came through the canal between Lake Michigan and the bay of Sturgeon Bay and then docked in Sturgeon Bay. The first photos were taken as the Draken came through the canal. The later ones are the Draken at dock.
