Sunday, May 30

We finally moved up to the Soo on Friday. Every year so many things seem to hold us back and this year was no exception. It was so good to arrive and find things in good shape. It is always a question if the well is going to be working and the if the water heater is actually going to start. One year we did burn out the elements by hooking up the power before there was water in the water heater. That isn't a good idea.

The big question is always have is if there is going to be damage from little friends like mice, chipmunks and squirrels. This year is was minimal or at least what I have noticed so far.

We haven't been able to get our internet/cable/phone hooked up yet. It looks like it will happen on Wednesday so I'll be able to tweet, facebook and blog again to my heart's content.

Here are a few pictures I took this morning. I'm sitting at my brother's right now watching the NASCAR race and thanks to his wireless, I'm on-line for the time being. It is great.

Canadian Transport in the morning sun near 3 Mile Road on Riverside Drive.

The American Spirit waiting for clearance to enter the Locks. Of course we have to drive by the Locks before going to church.

We are anxious to get out to our favorite restaurants like Clydes very soon. I'll keep you informed.

If you are reading this blog, you may be interested in reading more about the Sault area on Facebook. There are a couple of pages that I really enjoy and thought you might too.

The first is "I Love Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan". People post about their memories of the Soo and others post great photos of the Soo-past and present.

The second page is Mv Algolake. This page gives you a great view of life on the Great Lakes freighter Algolake. I have really gotten a flavor for what life on board a freighter is like with this site.

Both pages are worth looking at often. If you have any questions about Facebook, I'd be glad to try to answer them for you.
