NORTH GALES TO 40 KNOTS. SCATTERED SHOWERS. WAVES 12 TO 17 FEET SUBSIDING TO 10 TO 14 FEET.
Lakes should be rocking, although a north wind does little for creating waves on our side of the lake obviously. For the rest of the lake surfers though, it could be a different story. Holdin out for some much anticipated waves later in the week though.
Garden fresh potatoes grown in a pail in our backyard, fresh walleye that i caught, garden coleslaw (carrots and cabbage from Boreal Edge Farm), our tomatoes, local corn on the cob, fresh picked comb tooth and pig's ear mushrooms and green and yellow beans (some from our yard, some from Boreal Edge). I love this time of year.
Now if only we could get some surf up in this. Of course, that might happen this weekend while i am out of town....that would only make sense. Not bitter about the lack of surf...nope, not bitter all (couldn't be more sarcastic).
A basket full of treats: Pigs ear, Comb tooth, L.subglabripes and Aspsopp the foragers... (note the ecstatic look of the women on the cover of the field guide) Comb tooth (Hericium coralloides) prior to saute event Leccinum subglabripes...awaiting the drying rack. While some are better left alone on the forest floor
End of summer plant life in amazing sunrise sunlight along lake superior a couple of weeks back.

oh yeah, flip over to Malcolm Johnson's new site The Shiny Sea if you've got the time. Top Quality from British Columbia, with some interesting and inspiring links to keep one learned and entertained all at the same time.
The ole b-log has been sitting idle, but my body, mind and shutter have not. Been out on the water, doing what i do and enjoying it. What a beautiful start to September. A short recap to start the week off:
Glassy calm mornings Blue sky, head off to work Release a beauty of a lake trout...955mm (or 37.6''for the metrically challenged) and well over 20lbs. Take in the clouds up side down. Unexpectedly find a small shwack of chanterelles. Watch the sun go down as we finish up.
Post script...do note that the chanterelles were NOT found on the same day or location as the release of the magnificent LT. Seriously...how good do you think a day at work could possibly be.
