As sometimes happens, I didn't know what I missed until I left Copper Harbor for Kansas. I've lived n other places as well. Although I loved California and the ocean, it could not replace the tiny village of Copper Harbor and Lake Superior.
So I gathered together some of memories both to share with my visitors and also to keep my memories alive. I have been back to visit, but not as often as I would have liked. I would not want to live there now for I have an aversion to snow. Now I am living in New Mexico and do not miss the snowstorms.
Unless you are into winter sports, and many people are, I have found that visiting the Harbor is best in the summer. The autumn color season makes fall a popular time as well.
If you have not visited I Love Copper Harbor, Michigan, follow the highlighted link to take you there. I mean to the webpage, not Copper Harbor itself. Then wander back over here and leave a comment to let me know what part of the Harbor you liked the best.
My articles have a tendency to take on a life of their own. Whenever I start to write one, I have a general idea of what I want it to be about. In this case, I was sharing a somewhat humorous story about our trip to the Crater of Diamonds.
But something happens in the midst of creating an article. The story begins to take over, and I can only follow where it leads. The true story of the Quest for the Yellow Diamond wanted to be told, and as I am only the scribe, I must listen to my inner voice. I hope that it has been of some value to you.
Please feel free to leave any comments or questions you might have.
I am a storyteller. I like to wrap inspirational messages inside little vignettes of my life or the lives of others. I grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, have lived in an RV, and am now living in a senior apartment. Everything I've experienced in my 68 years in this incarnation is fair game to be written about.
