On the Road Friday ~ Once in a Blue Moon on Long Lake

 It is Friday. It is time to take a trip. 
July 31st, 2015 we had the opportunity to spend the day on Long Lake.
We have friends who live on Long Lake. They invited us to spend the day on the water and for a Blue Moon boat ride.

We started our ride with a beautiful sunset. 

We toured along the lake. 
A celebrity lives on Long Lake. 


Or some of you may know him as Mater, like my family does.



 
The Walleye Capital of Wisconsin, Long Lake in Washburn County is a picturesque 3,300 acre, 19 mile long lake reaching depths of over 70 feet.  The clear, spring-fed water, cool deep bays, gravel bars, pristine setting, and miles of undeveloped shoreline.

 Oh my, here comes the Blue Moon.

 When someone says "Once in a Blue Moon," you know what they mean:  Rare, seldom, even absurd.
This year it means "the end of July."
For the second time this month, the Moon is about to become full.  There was one full Moon on July 2nd, and now a second is coming on July 31st.  According to modern folklore, whenever there are two full Moons in a calendar month, the second one is "blue."

 The Moon belongs to everyone, the best things in life are free.

We met a few other boats going for a night time ride and enjoying the beauty of the moon.

  5. Every time I look at a full moon, I wonder who else is looking at it from wherever they are. I like the statement that the moon belongs to everyone. Have a great trip.

  14. Your photos are beautiful, magical even, and so must your blue moon night on the lake have been!

    Do you like the taste of the walleye? I always see it mentioned in travel articles about your area.

    Are you busy harvesting and putting up food for the winter?

    Happy fall to you,
