Good morning!

WOW, 2005 is a beauty. Love pictures of storm clouds over the lake.

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Friday, June 20, 2008 - 08:22 am:

Happy first day of summer everyone, feels like spring is finally here.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Friday, June 20, 2008 - 08:40 am:

I sure do wish I could attend, but I won't be up there until the July 3rd. Can anyone recommend a good place to watch the Copper Harbor fireworks? I will be on a Goldwing motorcycle so it has to be a paved area. I was thinking about Brockway.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Friday, June 20, 2008 - 09:51 am: you ride with a group?

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Friday, June 20, 2008 - 10:39 am:

Janie...this trip I will be solo.

By Sharon I. Smith (Sharons) on Friday, June 20, 2008 - 12:08 pm:

Alex - try the overlook, just up the road to the top of Brockway, but you'll have to get there really, really early, since it's a popular spot. The public dock and the 6th Street Park are also good spots, but usually there are a lot of people both places.
We're hoping for a good crowd and GOOD WEATHER!!! this year.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Friday, June 20, 2008 - 01:08 pm:

Sharon...thanks for the info. By the way, I really like your website "A View from the Field". Nothing beats Brockway Mountain at sunrise.

By Paul Oesterle (Paulwebbtroll) on Friday, June 20, 2008 - 01:56 pm:

It is a beautiful day here! The first day of summer after a wierd spring. I really hate to know that the days will start getting shorter now! We are leaving in a few minutes for Columbus, Ohio to visit a brother-in-law. Looks like rain going down and tommorrow also.
You all have a great weekend!

I'm home from my knee surgery Tues. and doing fine! Walking is the easy part, therapy is a killer!

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, June 20, 2008 - 03:21 pm:

You should head to Da Lake Marsha, mental therapy is just as important as physical. Soak your knee in Superior, much better than an ice pack!
Mr. Deb

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Friday, June 20, 2008 - 04:01 pm:

Good to hear Marsha! You can do it.

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Friday, June 20, 2008 - 05:23 pm:

I was wondering how you were Marsha. Thanks for checking in
with the Pasty Cam family.

By Mr. Bill (Mrbill) on Friday, June 20, 2008 - 08:32 pm:

Alex and Sharon,

It's been my experience that the overlook starts to become a parking lot after about 2 in the afternoon.

In 2005, a woman and her children had their pizza taken off the hood of the car by a bear, which they'd been using for a table.

So Alex - no munchies in the saddle bags!

By Sean Finnegan (Sean) on Friday, June 20, 2008 - 11:22 pm:

How about Sharon's deck?

By Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Saturday, June 21, 2008 - 12:38 am:

Good to hear you're doing well after the knee repairs Marsha...take it easy and don't overdo!

By FRNash/PHX, AZ (Frnash) on Saturday, June 21, 2008 - 01:45 am:

"... a bear, which they'd been using for a table."

Oboy, such courage! I sure wouldn't try to use a bear for a table.

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Saturday, June 21, 2008 - 11:30 am:

Where you been Frank, good to see you return.

By FRNash/PHX, AZ (Frnash) on Saturday, June 21, 2008 - 12:09 pm:


I have been lurking — I never miss my daily pasty fix!
Other than that just been kinda busy (What, I have a life?)

That and it's been a bit tame in pastyland of late, with nothin' specific in my areas of expertise.
