This toothwort has three leaves, each leaf cut deep to form three lobes per leaf.  There is also a two-leaved toothwort on BBI.
Lookie what I found! The same Blue Heron as Eric!
The Plaque(s) read:
"This is the finish line of the world's longest annual fresh water sailboat race. The 333 mile Chicago to Mackinac Island race has been held in July since 1898.

---:---

Erected by ISLAND GOATS SAILING SOCIETY whose members are required to have sailed in 25 or more Chicago to Mackinac races."

"THIS RETIRED NUN BUOY WAS DONATED TO THE ISLAND GOATS SAILING SOCIETY BY THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD 1993"
Some artistic techniques applied.  How beautiful to fish on a lake that is totally vacant of other fisherman.  Picture taken Feb 24, 2010.

A young fellow named Tyler throws a dart at balloons -- one of the contests at Fun Day on Bois Blanc on July 5, 2003.
Mackinaw Bridge charter with Stu and Pat.  I've seen and been on the bridge many times but this was the first time under it.  We also took a dip smack dab in the shadow of the towers.
This is how it looks behind my house right now.  The west wind really stuck the snow on the trees.  It only snowed a few inches but made big drifts.  The snow is in shadow and gives it a blue tint.  I actually brightened it up quite a lot.
