Ahh... the fresh breeze off of Lake Superior, the warmth of the summer sun, the sound of waves rippling along the shore. Top it off with the view of a freighter cruising in the distance, and you have the Pasty Cam from 8 years ago today.

Good morning! We're actually getting a little rain. It doesn't look like it will amount to much though. Stay inside and let it all fall on the ground! We woke to the sound of 4 sandhill cranes croaking about a 100' from our bedroom window while they grazed in the wheat stubble.

Love the picture of the ship.

Yea! we are getting a steady rain here in Hillsdale County Michigan. It is a very welcome site and sound. It is the kind of rain we need slow and steady. Enjoy your Sunday everyone.

Good morning from Mishawaka, IN. We received a much needed dose of rain overnight. It is beginning to stop but more expected later today. Have a good day.

Crazy FINNs drive Ford Anglia with;

This crazy Finn looks like he's driving on the seasonal roads in Keweenaw County! No wonder the Finns came to Michigan; it looks so much like home. When I was in Finland, I was amazed at the similarities.

PS Can someone tell me how to pronounce Bete Grise? My French is not so good.

By Doug (Greenhermit) on Sunday, August 5, 2007 - 03:10 pm:

Good French probably wouldn't help much in this case. It's locally pronounced "Bay Degree". In French it'd be more like "Bet Gree" I suppose.

By Mr. Bill (Mrbill) on Sunday, August 5, 2007 - 07:16 pm:

Every French speaker arrives at the "grey beast".

The present name, "BÍte Grise Bay," evolved over the years and is a good example of the alterations which can occur in a foreign language place name as it is Americanized.

Not recognizing that the French pronunciation of "Baie de" (which sounded like "BÍte") meant "Bay of," the Americans added "Bay" to the end of the name. Thus, we have the present redundant name, which means, literally, "Bay of Sandstone Bay."

Bete Grise is at the edge of the Jacobsville sandstone zone, and the Keweenaw fault.

Holy Moley! what was that video all about hey? Guess I'm not in YouTube or whatever that was! Can see why the Finns felt at home in the U.P. The scenery is amazingly simular!
