At the beginning of September, Aaron and I made a trip back to the US. It was our first time being back together in over a year. We spent two weeks there and boy were we busy! Between appointments, seeing friends and family, a baby shower, selling Aaron's truck, and a long weekend to God's Country (also known as the Upper Peninsula of Michigan), we barely had any downtime. But being back there made me realize that I miss Michigan much more than I thought.Read More
It's been a while since we last posted, but there was a good reason for it. I promise. Aaron was in Washington until last Saturday and I was in Michigan this past weekend to two close friends tie the knot. I am so glad that I was able to be there to celebrate with them. Cari was a beautiful bride and Murray seemed so excited to be marrying the love of his life.
The other awesome part about this last weekend? Seeing my sisters and being in 'Merica! Some of them I had seen in the past couple of months, the others I hadn't seen in quite a while. I realized how much I miss them all and miss having friends close byRead More
I promise, this is the LAST post about Isle Royale :) We hope you've enjoyed reading about the amazing diving that we did during the week, and learning more about this national treasure in Lake Superior. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the hard work of planning and logistics from the staff at Divers Incorporated in Ann Arbor, Michigan. And of course, without the expert captain of the Lake Superior Diver - Ryan - and his first mate (for this trip) Rick. If you are ever looking to do a charter to Isle Royale for ...Read More
Our final day on the Lake Superior Diver dawned early. We left Windigo and had a five hour or so ride down the northwestern side of the island to the southern edge where we were scheduled to do two dives on the Chisholm engine.Read More
Morning came on day 4 and we were ready for another day of diving! We repeated the Emperor Stern and also the America. The best part about these shipwrecks is that there is so much to see, even after you'veRead More
Wednesday morning dawned bright an early. Our alarm was Captain Ryan playing "It's a Beautiful Morning" by the Rascals - loudly. By the end of the week, what once starts out as a a fun way to wake up quickly becomes the worst way ever. Ok, perhaps that's a bit of an exaggeration. Then again, I'm not the world's biggest morning person. Actually, I'm not a morning person at all. Some say I am downright grumpy...Read More
Early on Tuesday morning, we woke up to the sky alight with an electrical storm. The sky was awesome to watch and the lightning lit everything up almost like daylight. And then then wind came. Followed closely by the rain. Even docked, the boat was rocking. Thankfully the storm was short-lived, but it ushered in much cooler weather and left some lingering wind making for a choppy day on the water.
We left Windigo early in the morning, while everyone...Read More
