THERE IS SOMETHING MISSING OFFSHORE FROM THIS BAYFIELD SHORELINE
Yes it’s true….Bayfield has lost one of it’s most notable Lake Huron landmarks or should that be lakemarks. What was left of the old Steamboat Linda Hindman has finally disappeared beneath the waves of Lake Huron just off the shoreline south of the harbor. The rusting hulk had been a tourist attraction and gathering point for summer swimmers, boaters, seagulls and cormorants for nearly fifty years. If you click the above Hindman link you can read about her history……….Just to make sure her disappearance wasn’t a ‘Twitter’ rumor Pheebs and I headed into Bayfield this morning to check it out. Yep, it’s gone alright. The concern now is where did it go and how deep is it. If only underwater a few feet it becomes a boating hazard. If dragged out to deeper water by last weeks heavy winds and waves it poses no threat. I imagine the search will be on in early Spring to locate it and make sure it is not posing an underwater hazard.

LAKE HURON WAVES BREAING OVER THE BREAKWATER AT THE ENTRANCE OF GODERICH’S HARBOR
HATCH COVERS WEIGHING TONS ARE OPEN
Despite a heavy cloud cover it was an acceptable day with temps around 40F and no wind. Pheebs and I were up to Goderich and back and now that our snow is gone I spent time outside this afternoon taking care of yard-works projects etc. I think if life gets any more exciting than this I won’t be able to handle it.
