I attended “The Junk Hunt” vintage market and “The Gales of November” conference this weekend at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center (DECC). The Junk Hunt had a fantastic assortment of fun vintage items. If you’ve never been to The Junk Hunt, it’s held annually at the DECC in spring and fall. It is a must for all "junk" lovers!
The Gales conference was the best I ever attended! There were so many great presentations it was hard to choose! My favorite sessions covered recently discovered shipwrecks and featured video of the wrecks on the bottom. The session also included 3D data models of the wrecks that were created using a process called “photogrammetry”. As a non-diver I always love seeing this kind of thing, especially when the images are of Lake Superior ship wrecks!
