Blue Heron

I am watching the Blue Heron pass by heading down the St. Marys River right now.  The Blue Heron is a research vessel from the University of Minnesota-Duluth.  I linked you to the University's web site for more information.

The Blue Heron is 87 feet long and was originally used as a fishing vessel. 

On a beautiful day, it was a nice site to see on the river.

I have been very remiss in getting to your blog and I apologize. I LOVE your new background! And I am so glad to see the ship/boat photos since I can't get to the Soo to see anything in person! Take Care!

Thanks Cathy. Life has a way of getting in the way of fun things like blog reading. The background picture was taken here at the cabin. I just love the flowers which some people consider weeds but they are so beautiful.
