Hello,

We were going to go to our state fair tonight to watch a band. But it's raining. So, I'm just finishing going through the last photos from the WILD cruise.

We had a nice time on the WILD Lake Superior cruise. Although the weather wasn't cooperative all the time, it was fun seeing some familiar faces and getting to know some new people. With the exception of Sand Island, the captain did an excellent job positioning the boat and allowing sufficient time for photos. The crew also seemed to interact more with the passengers this year. It was a great time!

Paul already did a great job sharing details and photos. Here are some I'd like to share...


Bald Eagle I normally don't bring along my 100-400 mm zoom lens unless I'm going to be photographing wildlife. When we saw this eagle, I was glad I had it. (Even with the zoom lens, I had to crop this shot.)


Duluth Outer Lighthouse


View of Split Rock from the Keweenaw Star This was my first time seeing Split Rock from a boat.


I was trying to take some photos of Split Rock from the shore, but all these people were in my photo. wink


The McBees and the Bill doll @ Split Rock

Bob Ott instigated a beer run after dinner. Here is Vicki distributing the last of the alcohol.

Tammy,
Great pics, thanks for sharing them. Larry and I had a terrific time on the WILD cruise as well. Suzanne, Judy, Pam and all the WILD ones did a super job.

Bob O certainly doesn't seem to be showing any effects of that three week illness he was recovering from! laugh

Great picture of Duluth with the sailboats!

Mike,

Being surrounded by good old friends, new friends, and fellow lighthouse lovers seemed to help one heck of a lot. Plus, it I didn't keep up with everyone else, I knew that I would probably have been left behind.

We made sure that Bob didn't over do things too much. But, he really did seem to enjoy traveling with five women.

That's Bob, our Jester of the Court. smile

Looks like a great trip...one of these days, I'm going to make this one. What fun!

Tammy, nice photos...I especially like the Duluth and the first Split Rock. You're kind of the "Split Rock Queen" - it's always fun to see a new angle of the light from you.

Thanks Everyone!

A WILD cruise is a fantastic opportunity for a WACKO get-together! We spend lots of time together, see some great lighthouses and have some great times! WILD Times! WILD WACKO Friends!

Thanks to Suzanne for the great booklet she put together from the WILD cruise! (Sorry if there is already a thread for this somewhere else.)
