It was the 84th annual Port Huron-to-Mackinac sailboat race today and I had the chance to cover it from a boat. This is way better than last year when I only covered everything from shore. Some storm clouds came through and brought some super heavy rain. Once the rain was gone mama nature left some dark clouds behind and a little bit of sun.

Ok, some may think this is a stupid. But it's not your blog...it's mine : ) I was in Boyne City visiting Monica and her parents and while driving through town I saw this street sign. 'R Street'. I just think it's interesting that a street starts with a letter. That's all.
It's been a busy week with our Port Huron to Mackinac boat race coming up this Saturday. This is one from today which was Family Night (carnival, food, boats, etc.-all by the Black River). Family Night is nice, it's just a lot going on at one time which is always tough for me to wrap my head around. Last year I was taking photos of Aerosmith stage-side so I had raised the bar pretty high.

I took a photo of this boy today and he couldn't stop talking about how much he loved his pond in his yard and the creatures under (and above) its surface. His mom said he had "an imagination that just won't quit". It was a last minute assignment and I wasn't sure what I'd be getting into when I arrived. This was a last minute assignment and although the meeting with the person was quick and brief, won't soon be forgotten.
My grandpa loves to tinker around and invent things, he was an engineer during his working days. So he didn't let retirement let his mind slow down as you can see. The wooden alligator is named "Woody" and it's got reflectors for eyes and the rest is from a tree that was on his property. For a number of years now it's been adorning his front yard and welcoming visitors as they turn into the driveway.
The pond is another story. He loves frogs and they've been sparse lately he said so he placed a plastic pond in his yard with some plants and tadpoles. There's a large street light in the middle but the bulb is only a nightlight bulb and he says it's just enough to attract bugs toward the water for the frogs. Genius !
