Sunrise over Basswood Island, Bayfield, WI
Most noted for its "Witches of November", the fall storms that can produce 30 foot waves, Lake Superior's Apostle Islands provides a Great Lakes sailing mecca
in the summer months. The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore provides an unspoiled landscape and safe harbor perfect for sailing, hiking, kayaking, canoeing
and camping. With the quaint maritime town of Bayfield as a jumping off point, and the Ojibwe reservations in the area,the region provides an experience rich in natural landscape and steeped in
history and lore.
Grab a cup of Coffee, and go sit on the docks and watch the world go by. Watching Bayfield wakeup up in the summer time is a splendid way to spend an early
morning. The lake is calm, often with hardly a ripple, the early fishing boats are just beginning to make their way out of the harbor, the ferries warming
up to start making their runs to Madeline Island. The seagulls and ducks taking their positions to greet the day. An overall sense of calm and order persists
When I view this image, I realize that I have no need of fear. Everything will be as it is supposed to be. I have only to accept today as it is.
When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid:
yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
Proverbs 3:24 (KJV)
When fears are strong, when the way tastes bitter,
When struggles abound, when hopeless and tossed,
I reach inside, I seize the power,
I take up my faith and the journey continues
