Not my typical photos but this is a start of something new. I will begin introducing drone shots along with portraits to my feed. To start this journey, here is a drone shot I took with the DJI Mavic Air 2 over Lake Superior 📸
We always appreciate the view from the Lake Superior shoreline, but lately we find ourselves looking out at that horizon wishing it was the North Atlantic. You might remember we hauled out Discovery in Nova Scotia last fall. We’re anxiously awaiting our chance to get back up there to start sailing again. #onlyinmn#lakesuperior#explorenovascotia#mahonebay
#DidYouKnow The greatest of the Great Lakes is Lake Superior, which holds 3 quadrillion gallons of water in 2,900 cubic miles. This is enough water to cover all of North and South America in 1 foot of water.
Lake Superior contains 10% of all planet Earth's fresh surface water.
To drive around the entire lake would take you on a 1,300-mile road trip through Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and the Canadian province of Ontario.😃 #50States50FunFacts#LakeSuperior

“If we keep telling people to do what’s easy, why would they ever think to do what’s hard?” ⠀
“I’m sure older generations could tell us about a time when struggle wasn’t something to be avoided. They knew that living a comfortable life free of all difficulty and all passion was never the goal. They didn’t expect to have a smooth ride. They would tell us that toil and struggle are the fire in which we force character. They championed the idea of getting dirt under your fingernails, working harder than anyone else would expect, striving for a dream with fierce tenacity even in the face of hardship because those efforts made you better, more capable human. Meeting struggle with poise and dignity got you respect. It made you a leader. “⠀

💙 Work hard, play hard.💙⠀
That’s our mantra and general outlook on life. 🙌🏼 We are working hard to dig into cabin details and will welcome everyone who comes here to play soon! 👌🏼 ⠀
For this bedroom—Yogi's bedroom, named after our bear artwork from @abelarts—the blues have it all. The blue of Lake Superior is the inspiration for much of the cabin decor. Ironically enough, I've been throwing some of the nervous energy and "blues" from the anxiety and stress in the world into learning new things.⠀
Woodworking wasn't really on the list for Phase 2 but the door (and the rug) really tie the room together. Once I get an idea in my head, I'm a little challenging to talk down. 😬 J has taught me a ton about saws, wood grain, building custom doors, and the appropriate weight for said custom doors to hang and roll perfectly. 🤩⠀
And here we are! Almost guest-ready and very excited to safely welcome guests back to the Keweenaw soon!
