CURRENT SCENES OF GRAND MARAIS: July 2007 Scenes

The July 4th Holiday in Grand Marais was another Gem. Since I did participate in the parade again, this year riding my bike wearing the bear coat (rather than walking), I don’t get much of a chance to see the other participants. Before it began, though, I took this picture of the Bennett clan. On the side of their float, keeping with this year’s theme, the sign said “Don’t Clown Around — Save the Bay.”

Every once in a while those of us who live in Grand Marais must take trips out of town to purchase items not locally available. While in Marquette, I snapped a couple of pictures of a freighter. The first is the freighter heading into the ore dock. The second shows the freighter loading iron ore pellets. Notice the chutes that swing down to dump the pellets into the ship’s hold.
