Sep 21, 2017 - North Shore Lake Superior

The day promises to be beautiful; we headed north along the shore road. The first stop was at Betty’s Pies for breakfast. Not a bad way to start the day. Then off to Gooseberry Falls State Park (and rest area). I am so impressed with the facilities at this and other state parks we saw. There is a beautiful visitor center with attached gift shop – great place to find gifts for grandchildren, etc. The hiking trails take you to overlooks at the upper, middle, and lower falls. There is still quite a bit of water, even for this time of year....

Sep 20, 2017 - Is it us???

OK, now we’re REALLY convinced that there’s a target on our roof that all of the vicious storms aim for. We woke up at 3:00 to rain and hail and wind and lightning like I’ve seen only once or twice in my life. The flashes were constant and the thunder was immediate. Thankfully, it only lasted about 45 minutes. We were convinced that we’d never get back to sleep, but dropped off pretty quickly. Good thing we only had 45 miles or so to drive to the next stop since we slept in. We arrived at the Burlington Bay campground in Two Harbors with a...

2016 RV Adventure

Jun 18, 2016 - Afternoon Drive on the North Shore

We drove about 50 miles north of Duluth in the afternoon, stopping to see huge waterfalls called Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock Lighthouse and the lighthouse in Two Harbors. The temperature reached 85 degrees today and it will be even a little warmer tomorrow but then it will be back in the 70s which is one of the reasons we came this far north. On the way back to our campground we followed the route of the marathon from Two Harbors to Duluth. There's a whole lot of clean up to do when you have that many runners. It's time to say good-bye...

May 26, 2015 - Two Harbors and Gooseberry Falls

May 26, 2015 Yesterday, we left Prairie Island, MN and headed north through Duluth, MN to the north shore of Lake Superior and the town of Two Harbors, which, not coincidentally, has two harbors, Burlington and Agate. The weather was awful for two days with this heavy mist that simply did not let up. We are staying at the Burlington campground which is a town owned one and quite nice with full hookups. Our site is facing Lake Superior; at least we think it is but it is so foggy that we can’t really see the lake. We walked to town along the...

Aug 18, 2014 - Two Harbors, MN - Burlington Bay Campground

It was a quick 40 miles from South Range, WI to Two Harbors, MN. It required going through Superior, WI and then across the St. Louis River into and through Duluth, MN. Both areas are pretty industrial handling all the material and ship traffic that makes the trip from here across Lake Superior and through the Soo Locks at Sault Ste. Marie into Lake Huron and beyond. We are staying at the delightful Burlington Bay Campground, which is a city park in Two Harbors. We are in the new, big rig area equipped with 50 amp, full hookup sites with a...

Aug 18, 2014 - Two Harbors Lighthouse

Two Harbors Lighthouse is located in Two Harbors, Minnesota. We were driving the North Shore Scenic Byway and ran upon this one. It is now used as a Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast. I am pasting information for our readers who would love to stay in this one. If you love lighthouses like we do, this would be a great vacation spot. The town is loaded with awesome shops and restaurants and lots of historical museums and more. My next update with cover the lighthouses in Duluth, check back later for more. Paste of information below: Light House Bed...

Aug 4, 2013 - chasing waterfalls and lighthouses along Lake Superior's northern coastline

Our final day at Grand Portage was another bike ride south to Grand Marais along the coastline of Lake Superior. We called it our chasing waterfalls and lighthouse day since we visited several. In Grand Marais we stopped for awhile at their annual fisherman’s festival – it was fun even though somewhat crowded. After that, we moved south to the Duluth area and set up the rig at Ogston RV park north of Duluth. During our visit there, we met up with RV friends Helen and Bill Moll. They stayed at a park right in town. Helen is a Duluth native...

May 6, 2013 - HOME AT THE LAKE

Monday, May 06, 2013 We made it home last Tuesday. I couldn’t wait. I called my snowmover guy on Monday evening and he said all the ice melted off the driveway! I was amazed so we headed north. It was a beautiful day with temps in 60’s. We didn’t hit snow until we were almost to Duluth which surprised us. When we got to the cabin we always walk in first to make sure everything looks good for pulling the trailer in. We ran into a neighbor on the road and he took the pic of us in front of the driveway. Everything was looking good and boy was...

Sep 10, 2012 - No Visit to Isle Royale Natl Park This Year!

This morning we called the lodge at Isle Royale National Park and found that they were closed for the season! That was a disappointment, but we are going to try to get the ferry over to the island anyway. That should give us several hours to explore, and we can make another trip the following day if we want to spend more time there. However, as we left the campground, the ferry company returned my call and said they will not make another trip to the island until September 22, and we can't stay that long. Looks like a good excuse to come...

Apr 22, 2012 - Beautiful Home on the Lake, Last entry

Sunday, April 22, 2012 Hey gang. We spent a couple days truckin last week from Little Rock, AR to North Branch, MN. Spent the night in Kansas City and got out as severe weather was forecast. Luckily we dodged it tho nothing hit KC but there were over 100 tornadoes further west. Glad we got out of there. We got to my nieces in North Branch on Saturday and set up in her yard. On Sunday we went back to the cities to visit Barb’s Mom and sister and brother. We had planned on leaving Monday but a forecast of snow up north changed our minds. My...

May 1, 2011 - Yippee, we be happy to be home

Sunday, May 01, 2011 Well Sports Fans. For the last 6 months you have wasted untold precious minutes, out of the finite number allotted to you during your lifetime, reading something akin to a pulp fiction novel, or worse yet, a seventh graders “here is how I spent my winter vacation” report. Tut, tut, tut. Well maybe it beat staring out the window wondering when the snow will stop falling or if it will ever melt. And that is what I’m doing now, and I love it. We did arrive safely back at the little cabin on Kane Lake last Wednesday during...
