This ship was such an unusual sight to see, close to shore at Pointe Aux Pins in the middle of February.  People feared that it might continue west, after spending the night as the Harrington's neighbor.  Instead it did a U turn and headed east on the 22 of February.

This is from a ditch in T.C. that was flodded last year after a heavy rain.

View from Hoover dock.  Bill Owens Sr. on the point getting a better view.

Two days earlier the ice was solid in this channel.  A big wind blew from the south west and a ship went though too.  This was the result.  There had been a plan in the works to cross this until it was found out a ship went though.

This is the ditch on the east side of the road.  After weeks of rain, note the non-existent run-off.  If no ditches had been trenched, the water in this area would have gently run across the road over a distance of a 1000' or so, onto a dozen pieces of property.  As it is now, the ditches funnel the water onto two private properties with no outlet.  What great engineering.  What a waste of tax dollars.

This puddle is overflow from the ditch, running west to east.

Looking South.  The "ditch" is to the far right of this overflow.

A very pretty lagoon between the lot and Lake Huron shore

View looking from main road to Lake Huron

First year I have ever noticed these.  I read that they are common, but maybe not too common on BBI.
Yes, there is a spot of yellow near the tail.

Compare this picture to the one taken just one month ago located right in this folder.
There is still an ice bridge, but it is too risky to cross.  The tongue of open water is about a quarter mile from the tree line in this picture.

Two pictures combined.  See the tree line near Point Nipigon curving out toward the island.  See open water on the right neat Pointe Aux Pins.  Remember to click on the picture.

I can't help but think that a leader with this man's integrity could at least start to turn this place around.

The day the line went in.  Note how the ice is gone in front of Pointe Aux Pins.

This small wetland pond lays between Lake Michigan and US-2 in the UP.

This ice is all loose pieces that can move with the wind.  This view is to the West.  When I look South, I can see a lot of open water.
