May 31 - June 4, 2008:
Let's see ... the weather forecast for the next couple of days is for ... aaawwww look at that ... rain, rain, rain and more rain! On May 31st we packed up and left Busy Beaver Campground and St Joseph Island and continued west along the Trans-Canada highway. We'd planned to do a photo shoot in Sault Ste Marie but the rain put the brakes on that idea so we only stopped for diesel.
We travelled for several hours with our sights set on Agawa Bay in Lake Superior Provincial Park and arrived in the late afternoon in drizzly rain.
We had come full circle since last fall when we spent some of our final nights on the 2007 production here in Agawa Bay.
When we arrived at Agawa Bay our original campsite was taken so we found another one which was even better as we had enough space to launch the satellite and get a strong signal. This is always our challenge - being able to get internet while we travel. If we can get internet then we can do our daily routine of email and website checking - this is how we keep the business going while on the road. Unfortunately, most of the time the system has not been reliable enough for us.
I also had to take care of a personal matter - I had to call New Zealand to check on my father who'd given the family a scare with an angina attack. I'd felt like I'd been sitting on hot coals all day. I raced off to place the call to New Zealand while Rolf set up the camper. After making the phone call and with the peace of mind knowing that my father was in a stable condition I returned to the camper to help finish setting up.
For the next four days we stayed in Agawa Bay - originally it was going to be 2 nights but we kept extending ... it's a beautiful location and we couldn't drag ourselves away. Also, the spring/summer was barely evident up in this region - everything was very late this year and during our whole stay in Agawa Bay we hardly saw any wildlife. It was very cool too so we took the opportunity to once again catch up on the "office" side of business.
We did manage to capture some beautiful sunsets from the sandy beach of Agawa Bay over Lake Superior - once the weather cleared.

The last time we were here on the sandy shores of Agawa Bay in Lake Superior Provincial Park was in early October 2007, when the nights were chilly and the leaves were a glorious medley of colours.
