Went to Grand Portage, Minnesota today. Work related. We were scouting about to find a location for some weather instruments for use by the marine community. Probably shouldn’t give out details of this excursion because there is some negotiating that needs to be done.
I will say I had a real fun hike to the tip of Hat Point. Hat point is the eastern boundary of Grand Portage Bay. There was Spanish Moss type stuff drooping off of the pines in the woods there. Never saw that type of moss in Minnesota.
I also learned there is herring fishing in Lake Superior. We met a local character who has been herring fishing since he was seven… he is now 84 years old.
