For my second outing I decided to do a coffee shop without walls while watching the sun rise over Lake Superior.
I chose a perfect day for it. When I left the house 45 minutes before sunrise the temp was 48 and the skies were clear. I made very good time. The ride was all downhill with a strong tailwind.
Oh the joy one feels upon learning he hasn't forgotten anything.
Although the water was a bit slow to boil, I got the coffee pressed with a few minutes to spare.
Hot on the rocks.
For your (quick) viewing pleasure.
My coffee companion. I didn't share. He seemed high strung enough.
Here is just one small contributor of Lake Superior's water. It's much more impressive in the spring.
Although I left my squirrel friend behind I still had some pleasant, and quiet, company for the ride home. Even if he would have spoken, I never would have heard him over the wind.
