And now—BACK TO OUR STORY!

Season 12—Adventure 4—2015 Port of Danger Bay—Episode 3… Meanwhile… With the “home tour” out of the way—we can take a peek at… A large steam yacht as it slowly makes its way up-lake—it began its journey from a large warehouse in the Duluth-Superior Harbor two days previously.

The boat left the harbor through the canal with several other vintage yachts—including Cap & Edith Sezavich in their new replica Crusader Fishing boat. The owners of the yacht were on-deck and waving to the crowds on both sides of the canal.

As they moved out on the lake the boats circled towards Duluth and skirted the shoreline as far northeast as Brighton Beach before returning to the harbor—except for two boats—the steam yacht and Sezavich Crusader. Both boats continued up the lake—with the Crusader slowly falling behind.

Cap and Edith stopped in Two Harbors to spend the night in the Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast, while the steam yacht continued on its slow journey up-lake.

They looked to any who may have observed them as rather wealthy people on a leisurely journey.

They stopped in Grand Marais and booked a three bedroom suite in the high-end East Bay Suites. They stayed for a week—tipped well—and made a show of their wealth. But not in an off-putting, overbearing way.

The City of Grand Marais would long remember, fondly, this group of wealthy individuals. Individuals who would mix amiably with the common-folk—Yah-sure—you-betcha!

The steam yacht was observed by the North Bay Lighthouse keeper during her rounds as it entered the Port of Danger Bay harbor—and admired, “Ol’ Cap oughta get a kick out of that boat.”

In point of fact—GENTLE READER—We ALL will remember this yacht—soon enough, I’ll warrant!

They won’t be fond memories.
