It's happening, spring is really trying to arrive here in the Copper Country. Just look at the pictures E. Neil Harri had in his Guest Gallery Album. We're looking at Eagle Harbor, Neil's stomping grounds, with the first shot looking across the Harbor over to the Marina and the Old Coast Guard building there. That's one sturdy dock in the picture, to be able to withstand the freezing ice coming and going year after year. Neil's next shot has Kaisa posing on the same part of the Harbor, but further towards the Big Lake, so you can see where all that ice from the Harbor is headed... out to sea! The next photo is a mirror image of the trees and the building, with the water so calm and still. It almost looks like a quiet summer day, except for the remaining ice in the bay. Then Neil slides his camera lens over to the left so we can end with another reflection photo, this time of the Lighthouse and point. Yes sir, things are looking up when the water shines clear and smooth like this again!

Speaking of looking up... Neil has aerial photos too numerous to count and DVD tours of the different areas of the U.P. both in the Fall and the Winter, so be sure to head on over to his website, NeilHarriPhotos.com. While you're there, be sure to click on the "Important Links" on the right hand side of the page, along with the various links to items Susan and Neil are selling on the lefthand side. Even if it's too late for Easter giving, you might find something there for Mother's Day which will be here before you know it. Not only can you purchase a gift for Mom (or anyone else) on Neil and Susan's site, but you could really "make her day" by ordering U.P. Pasties for dinner, so Mom can have a day off from cooking! There are still some open shipping dates for April, so check them out and order up some today!

Thanks, Janie. Kaisa has her 5th birthday on the 10th. She gets me off my easy chair every night, all year long. She doesn't care what the weather is like either. She lets me eat supper and watch the news but then she will keep hounding me until I take her for a walk or snowshoe. She is my personal trainer.
