Northshore Highlights

Carol A. Hand

A colorful morning although skies were grey

On a cool but ordinary Saturday

Bumble bee feasting – June 17, 2017

An impromptu trip along Lake Superior’s Northwest shore

Silver Creek Cliff Tunnel

Dramatic skies promised rain for sure

Heading North
A Rainy View

Fast moving storms pass, creating fog and rising steam

Lake Superior View from Palisade Head (Beaver Bay, MN)

Inspiring a moment to ponder, perhaps to dream

My daughter, gazing a the lake she loves

Watching a robin bathe

A Happy Robin

And a rescued resting little bug

An insect my granddaughter lovingly rescued

Taking time to enjoy family

Lake Superior – Palisade Head
Cross River Falls, MN
Cross River Falls

And time for a hug

Grand Marais, MN

Beautiful sights and laughter along the way

Lake Superior – Grand Marais, MN
Cross River Falls – looking west
Cross River Falls – looking east

Treasures of travels on an ever-shifting weather day

After the storm passed through

    1. Thank you so much for your thoughtful, lovely comments, JoAnn. < 3
      (I love watching clouds and overcast days are actually easier to work with – the light is diffuse and not too bright.)

  1. Oh how fun this was Carol. I love knowing something about where you live and your family. You have a beautiful daughter and granddaughter! Thank you for sharing this with us. And can you please send some of that rain down to Texas?! Hugs and blessings, Natalie 🙂 ❤


    1. Dear Natalie, thank you so much for your delightful comments. I’m sorry to hear it’s too dry in Texas. We’ve had alternating bouts of drought and too much rain this spring, as well as a prolonged period of frost warnings. I just got some of my plants in last week! Hugs and blessings to you, too. ❤

      1. Oh wow that is late. A lot of my flowering things have already come and gone. And we’ve entered summer’s inferno here in Texas sadly. It’s always good to find your posts in my inbox and see what you have to say. I believe us to be kindred spirits dear Carol❣️😘

    1. Hearing from you is always a gift, Bob. Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments. May we all have many lucky days spent with those we love. ❤


  2. Lovely verse and gorgeous photos 😊 We are in the midst of a heatwave, 32C yesterday, such a contrast to a week ago when I was still wearing woolly jumpers and long socks!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Chris. It’s always a challenge for me to convert temperatures from Celsius to Fahrenheit. 🙂 Here, 32 is the freezing point. Where I live in Minnesota, it still goes down to 50 degrees F at night (10 degrees C?).

      In the process of figuring out the conversion of C to F, I learned something new! I didn’t realize that 0 C is the freezing point of water, and 100 C is the boiling point. I really like that way to set the values of degrees. It never occurred to me to ask where Fahrenheit values came from until today. Now I know but I’ll let others discover it online for themselves as I did. 🙂


    1. Thank you so much for your kindness, Pat, and best wishes to you and your lovely family in sunny Yorkshire.

      Ah, how I wish I were photogenic. Unlike the photo IDs for work and driving that have given me a laugh for many many years, digital photos give me the option to choose what to share. I have a rather large collection of rejects. 🙂

    1. It’s my break time from yard work, so I actually saw your lovely comment pretty quickly. 🙂 I hope you are doing well, dear friend. And speaking of photogenic, it is always delightful to see you handsome smiling face on your vlogs.
