BOATS

This boat was traveling out on the lake near sunset tonight.  The calm waters of Lake Superior made for a reflection in the water that we could see from our house miles away.  Beyond the boat in the background is the ice that continues to shift in toward shore. Tonight it had moved further out towards Wisconsin.

These two tugs escorted the BBC Celina into port yesterday morning.  I had hoped to catch her going under the Aerial Lift Bridge, but was slowed down on my drive towards the harbor by a garbage truck.  I think this shot turned out better than the one that I had wanted to get.  You can also see it on Daily Duluth Photo.

Big Boat, Little Boats

Not long after the BBC Celina came under the bridge, the Wagenborg came in.

BASEBALL

Sebastian’s intermediate baseball season is underway.  We saw his first game on Sunday afternoon.  He did a great job pitching and also had a single, stole bases and had a great catch in the outfield.

BLOSSOMS

My daffodils are finally blooming now that it is the 3rd week in May.

My Mother’s Day flowers are still looking good a week and a half later.

BRANCHES

The trees and shrubs are slowly showing signs of tiny leaves.  Spring has been slow to come this year, but I think it really is here .

BEAUTIFUL MUSIC

Sophia’s Spring recital was on Tuesday at Weber Music Hall at UMD.  Once again she had the opportunity to play piano on stage in front of an audience.  She did a wonderful job playing a piece called Little Grey Owl and another that she composed last fall titled Autumn Dance of the Leaves.

At the end of the recital, she and many of her fellow piano students received their awards/certificates for piano testing that they did earlier in the year.

BIRDS

We have had a number of birds at our bird feeder, including this little guy who didn’t seem to be bothered by my picture-taking.

Dinnertime

I was trying to get a picture of this little red bird (and wasn’t doing a very good job), when a chickadee photobombed my image.

We are all looking forward to a long weekend with the Memorial holiday ahead.  We are planning to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather.
