7/10/05 – Have you ever read the Shel Silverstein poem titled “It’s Hot!”? Something about taking off your skin and sitting around in your bones in an effort to cool off. That poem could have been written at Sawbill this week. With afternoon temperatures topping 90 degrees Farenheit in the sun, the crew is doing everything possible to stay cool. Four swims a day has become standard, lights are always off when not in use, and every meal is a salad. After the Grand Marais Summer Senior League baseball team, featuring Carl Hansen on first, defeated Duluth Central in a pair of resounding victories today, much of the team joined coaches (and Sawbill crew members) Jeff Green (right) and Adam Hansen (below) in a swim in Lake Superior. For once, the lake’s icy chill felt refreshing.
