Back from the North


The blog has been inactive while I was somehow surviving nine days without Internet access, vacationing on Lake Superior in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. There's a tiny little town called Grand Marais on the northern shore of the UP that has lured us back many times after we first discovered it years ago. The large bay became well known as the only refuge from Superior's storms between Marquette and Sault Ste. Marie for Great Lakes ships, and the town (pop.350) grew up around the logging and fishing industries.

Today it is as isolated as it is beautiful, and the August weather is consistently spectacular. A great place to read, bike, and recharge the batteries. With those as our modest goals, we succeeded rather easily.
