Vol XXI – #22 – Happy 4th of July

Above are photos from 4th of Julys past. The top is one Christy Edwards captured as Keith was walking up and down the parade route in 2015. The one above was taken by Keith the same day. A lot has changed in a year. No parade or fireworks this year, but things look good for next year. Biscuit the statue… Read more »

Vol XXI – #21 – Tribute to Biscuit

Summer Meyer at Fishtown Preservation spearheaded an beautiful tribute to our dear departed Biscuit with a silhouette metal cut out by Geoff Niessink. The tag on his collar says, “In honor of all dogs who love and have loved Fishtown”. Amanda Holmes unveiled it with a very kind speech in front a small crowd of friends. Biscuit will be down… Read more »

Vol XXI – #19 – Out on the Red Jacket

A rare opportunity presented itself yesterday when our own Meggen’s father David Watt asked if I wanted a ride on the Red Jacket, a trawler he brought down from the U.P. I’m not going to pass up that opportunity! What a fantastic ride up the North shore to Onominee Beach and back. Calm seas and a beautiful sunset to end… Read more »

Vol XXI – #18 – Weather is Good for the Art Shanty

What a difference a day makes. Cloudy and cold yesterday opened up to sunny and a bit warmer today. Water is still nice enough to take a dip in the morning. The Harbor is also back in action. This is Erin Ledyard’s last day in Fishtown in the Art Shanty today so be sure to visit to see her fabulous… Read more »

Vol XXI – #17 – Sunset in the Harbor

Our picture perfect day yesterday turned into a picture perfect sunset. I joined a bunch of people gathered along the North Beach shoreline to enjoy the show. Jim will be in Fishtown in the Art Shanty (under Haystacks in the old Leland Gal spot) from 6/29-7/5 with canvas, metal, and framed prints and puzzles and these cool little acrylic blocks….

Vol XXI – #16 – In Town

Another picture perfect day today. A good day to take a long lunch and boat into town for some ice cream at the Harbor House. Jim will be in Fishtown in the Art Shanty (under Haystacks in the old Leland Gal spot) from 6/29-7/5 with canvas, metal, and framed prints and puzzles and these cool little acrylic blocks. We’ll also… Read more »

Vol XXI – #14 – Almost a week later

Jim will be in Fishtown in the Art Shanty (under Haystacks in the old Leland Gal spot) from 6/29-7/5 with canvas, metal, and framed prints and puzzles and these cool little acrylic blocks. We’ll also have some Keith Burnham Leland series pen and ink prints. Thank you to Mark Smith who reminded me today that there were still some Lady… Read more »

Vol XXI – #12 – Lake is Calm, Town is Full

So, last time (two weeks ago) I said warmer weather was moving in. I was kind of right, but it was short lived. We drove in at 1am and it was 31F. This morning, it was also below freezing, but both days it warmed up enough to put the boat in for the season and take a ride. I will… Read more »

Vol XXI – #6 -Snow Gauge Contest Results

Today’s main photo is by Mark Smith. He said that day was beautiful, but a bit chilly! The one above is from Keith’s 2017 May Archives. From what I saw on Instagram, you had a light dusting of snow, but not really enough to budge the snow gauge chart up at all. Final reading is 64.1″ for the season, which… Read more »

Vol XXI – #2 – Beach Shadows and Waning Spring Ice

North Beach shadows and waning ice. In the spring, the sun shines one one side of the driftwood on the breakwall, leaving the other side in shadow. The shadow side melts last, leaving a nicely framed outline of the driftwood. The main photo just looked like a howling wolf.
