A lot of people don't like seagulls, but think they're quite interesting birds. There are a lot of seagulls in my hometown in Minnesota. Plus a little sandpiper (I think that's what it is . . . I'm not really sure). Maralee

Pastel Dawn

My first morning in Grand Marais I got up early to watch the sunrise. It was so peaceful sitting by the lake, listening to the water lap on the shore, and watch the changing colors of the morning. This was just before the sun rose. Maralee

Grand Marais Sunset

The first night back in my hometown, I wasn't sure if we were going to have much of a sunset. There was some pretty heavy cloud cover. But it started to break up and ended up being a gorgeous sunset. Maralee
