17 Days to go!
17 Days to go!
Just wanted to leave a note to thank you, Bill, for your wonderful newsletters with the photos and videos. I do, however, have to tell you what an absolute tease they are to someone on the other side of the world! Wish I was THERE :)
Getting more excited as the days before Photostock tick off and the thought occurred to me -- I don't have to be home right away afterwards. I could spend another two or three days, maybe in the UP. Anyone have any suggestions for that? I was looking at a map and the Pictured Rocks area looks like fun. I could take a tent and a sleeping bag and go cheap. How much of a drive is it to the Pictured Rocks area from the Bridge?
Consider visiting or staying in Grand Marais, on Lake Superior, which is about 25 miles north of Seney. You'll have easy access to the Grand Sable dunes which are very impressive, especially in the evening as the low sun angle makes for dramatic shadows on the dunes. You can easily walk on the dunes too, and, because they're more exposed to the wind, no bugs.
Look on the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore website for more info on the Rocks and the Dunes.
I might be passing by there on my way north, wondering if I should stop by....
ANYONE STILL LOOKING FOR A ROOM?
I reserved the Family Suite at the Birchwood and would love to find 1 or 2 people to share the extra room. Let me know if anyone of you is still looking for a place to stay. I have the room for three nights from Thursday 6/20 until Sunday 6/23.
I'm so excited and counting down the days to my first trip to Photostock! Can't wait to meet everyone!
