Captain’s Log: Somewhere in Wisconsin
|Sailboat at harbor in Bayfield WI|
Actually I think I know where we are. We’re in Washburn, a little south of Bayfield in a park on Lake Superior. We have a great view of the lake and the weather is perfect. So why am I typing on this computer? Because I can.
When we were at Two Harbors, I remember thinking we had a great view of the lake and the weather was perfect. There was one evening when Janie and I were sitting around the fire enjoying the view when things became almost surreal. The sunset was actually to our backs, but it was illuminating the sky and the reflections from the lake magnified it beyond anything I recall ever seeing. Just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any better, a partial rainbow appeared. There were some small boats on the lake, and I was wondering what it looked like from where they were at.
Then I looked over at our neighbors across the street: they were watching an NFL game on their outdoor TV (I believe it was the first NFL game of the season). Probably Packer fans. Their backs were to the lake, so they were missing the whole reverse sunset thing, but they were obviously having fun. The Packers must’ve been winning. Despite my initial feeling that I had the better view, I couldn’t help but wonder what the score was. I need an outdoor TV.
