The Gales of November

October 27, 1979

Happy Anniversary to Us!

This year it's 38 years of marriage! We postponed our celebration until November 10, 11, 12 this year. Destination: Cascade Lodge on Lake Superior.

November 10 is the Anniversary of the Edmund Fitzgerald. The tragic accident happened just 4 years before we were married.  I didn't realize that at the time but it makes sense now why the song "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" by Gordan Lightfoot was so popular in the late 70's.

Nice footage of shipping in the Great Lakes.

So our trip is themed this year.  Gales of November.  I can only hope to see waves crashing against the rocks.  I think we can listen to the Best of Gordan Lightfoot on the way up. ONCE.  And I know we can find a local brew with a November-like name.  We will also visit the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and unrelated to shipwrecks hike with my new backpack looking for fallen birch limbs and red dogwood for holiday decorating.  Happy anniversary to us!
