Caseville Beach Sunset

On a Lake Huron Sand Dune…at Midnight

Moon over the Lake - Lake Huron Sand Dune

Standing on an ancient Lake Huron sand dune where our cottage sits listening to the surf pound away at the beach. It’s now dark and foreboding. The fetch of the waves is from the big lake coming into the bay and hitting our lee shore. The sound is powerful yet serene. The air is fresh and smells of the open water and Canada beyond.  The stress of the city melts. Tomorrow offers a new chance at an awesome day. You never know what the lake will offer you a chance to go out and play again on a Lake Huron sand dune.

When you have a sailboat the most common question is where have you gone with it. We have taken Trillium, a 1973 Catalina 27 across the Saginaw Bay from Caseville over to Tawas, and took a two-week vacation up and back to Mackinac Island. Sailing Out on Saginaw Bay for the First Time

Who knows drinking coffee could be so much fun. Found this video stacked up in our YouTube account collecting time alone and no hits. I thought it worthy of a dust-off. This is one college student’s method of making a Michigan coffee. Evan’s Take on Making Coffee

It’s seldom that I get a chance to really view a Saginaw Bay sunrise. As we rush to get ready for work, feed the kids, and let out the dog, when was the last time you really sat back and watched the sun come up. The moments before sunrise can be the quietest of the day. Coffee and a Sunrise over Saginaw Bay

In the days before the highway and autos, the only way to travel the vast distances for the Great Lakes was by sail and steamer. In the mid-1800s until well into the 1950s one could travel most of the lakes in style and comfort. Great Lakes Cruising History – Luxurious Times
