Sharon Bodenus enjoys a good adventure and usually has her camera alongside her in her travels. She recently went on her first ATV ride and her comment was that it won't be the last, either. So I think that indicates that she enjoyed herself, despite a couple hours of rain as they rode the trails and what she described as mud holes that you thought you'd sink to China in!

The riders spent the night in Big Bay, at the Picture Bay Motel, which owns the piece of land overlooking the beautiful scenery in today's photos. I love the light, the shadows, the brightness of the green grass and leaves. The entire scene just radiates with peace and quietude. You can imagine there must be morning critters around there filling the quiet with their chatter and banter.

What beautiful scenes to start the day with! Thanks Sharon!

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, July 8, 2016 - 08:49 am:

Great shots, Sharon!!
Dr. Nat and I will be in the Big Bay area in about a month, but who's counting.....

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Friday, July 8, 2016 - 09:01 am:

That's the best part of ATVing or
snowmobiling....seeing sights you can't from a

Breathtaking shots!! Thanks for sharing these.
Love waking up to beautiful scenery like this!

Very nice...the first one looks like an oil painting.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Friday, July 8, 2016 - 03:32 pm:

Beautiful + green!

How's Ron, Deb? When will you be able to get to the U.P.?

Capt. Paul: How could you not be counting the days? When I think
of Texas today, I think of you and Dr. Nat. I guess we always think
of those we "know."

Gotta get back to Big Bay, Sharon. You inspire me to do that.
There's so much to do and see in the U.P.

Today I picked my first cup of blueberries of the season. Will make
blueberry muffins for the morning. As I picked this afternoon, I
channeled my father. The berries are much better this year than
last. His heart would have been so glad. Here's to you, Dad!

By Donna (Donna) on Friday, July 8, 2016 - 08:25 pm:

Mornings are SACRED...esp in those quiet spaces.

Awesome on your Dad, Kosk!

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, July 8, 2016 - 09:45 pm:

Thanks Kosk! ;-)

Wouldn't it be nice if someday all of the "Pasty Folks" could come together for a meeting in the Keweenaw??

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Friday, July 8, 2016 - 10:00 pm:

BEAUTIFUL pictures.

The, very first time, I went thimbleberry picking was with my mom......as I reached for a berry I went down into a ditch. She forgot to tell me about the slopes and the ditches. I would love to do that again....miss you, mommma.

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Friday, July 8, 2016 - 10:09 pm:

Yes, it would be nice Capt. Paul. Ive been lucky enough to meet
Mary, Deb and Ron in person.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, July 8, 2016 - 10:15 pm:

We've been lucky enough to meet you, Kosk, AND
your dad!! Have met the Capt and the Dr. Had a
good time at the Ambassador. Have met Mikie,
Ploveabby, LizinIdaho, Kay, Cotton, and the latest
one we've met is Janie. Have known Mary most of
my life, and Laurie also. For us all to get
together would be a wonderful time.

Kosk, I don't think we'll get up there until Sept
some time. Ron's in quite a lot of pain, and got
his staples removed and knee drained today. Won't
even be able to drive for a while yet. Can't bend
his knee very far. Has pt 3 times a week and it's
not pleasant. So, we're shooting for late

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Saturday, July 9, 2016 - 03:42 am:

Ron...exercise if you're able to do so, specifically...strength train, it's helped me through a lot of injuries...including knee.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Saturday, July 9, 2016 - 03:49 am:

Why am I awake at 3:40am?

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Saturday, July 9, 2016 - 06:49 am:

Deb and Ron: On a positive note, the end of September is
absolutely gorgeous. Keeping you in my prayers.

Wish we had had a chance to meet Shirley and Edie Fitz before they
passed on.
