Biking Grand Island


I swear I will never complain about the cold again! It has been in the 90’s up here in Marquette for the past few days and it is unbearable… We have been keeping cool by jumping in Lake Superior everyday and doing other fun water sports. We went kayaking down the AuTrain River with about 150 people on the 4th of July. It was fun but crowded. We also went sailing and paddle boarding last week.

Between the full moon, fireworks off the beach and the heat lightning in the distance, the sky was lit with energy. The weather has been very hot lately (high 80’s and 90’s), but luckily we have been getting some good rainstorms at night. My garden is loving it. The dogs are not loving it so much.
