Memories of Summer

In August, I took my daughter and her friend "Up North" to a cabin near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) in Northern Minnesota.

Here's a photo of the lake from our dock.

One day we went into town and met my Dad for lunch. This is the town of Grand Marais.

In the "olden days," there wasn't a harbor in Grand Marais. People had to wait out on the rocks for the ferry. While people waited, many of them carved their names into the rocks. The signatures are still there today.

Here's a signature carved by a Mr. Scott in 1902.

  1. I ADORE Grand Marais-we always venture out to the rocks, and I never knew that's why the names were there. Thanks for a nice summer flashback on this cold morning.
