Needed a couple scoops of sand for a project so Wren and I hit up the lake this morning. We have beach! Here's a quick video too.

I picked up a new toy, that you'll read more about later, but I've used it for almost a week to record a time-lapse of the ice melting out at the cottage. It's pretty darn cool if I do say so myself. It might even be better if you watch it at 2x speed on YouTube.

Watching this it's no wonder the sand can change so much. I'd love to get a season's long video of that, but I need to use my new toy for other things...

Thanks! I made a playlist, added the last parts to it yesterday. I think parts 3 and 4 are the best, but it's all pretty neat.

So this afternoon when I picked up daughter #2 from school, she said "who's the guy at the place in Michigan that shoots potatoes into the lake?" I said, "his name is Ned, why?" She replied "I was telling my friends about him and his cannon and now he's their new hero." So there ya go Ned.

The grill trailer is booked, that's as official as the start of TR BBQ season gets. I can't believe the 3-month warning is already coming up next week. :o
