I was lucky enough to snag a campsite at 12 Mile CG in Pictured Rocks Natl Lakeshore til Monday....you have to be early, and quick...and I was.

No phone nor internet there, so I will be incommunicado til Monday.

Had to drive into Grand Marais for signal, having a scheduled phone call to make, so letting any who may worry know not to.

When I am on next, I will have pictures.

Note for you, Maggie

Here is one from a website, in memory of a dear friend who passed recently:

Yes, Carbear, a very special tribute to our friend, Edda. And, Fantine has requested we pass along this story, told by Edda to Fantine a few years ago. In times when even basic necessities are lacking,* we often elevate simple elements to a place of

You guys are so sweet.


It is a cleansing and peace-inducing experience to be unplugged for long enough that you get thru and past the initial withdrawal .....into the calm and quiet that then settles into your mind and life minus the electronics. A good thing to do now and then.

No phone, Internet or television, forcing me to read more than usual, crochet more than usual....and, especially, walk Lily more than usual.

12 Mile Beach is a beautiful, heavily forested campground, overlooking Lake Superior. A really nice beach, easily accessed by stairs to those always clear waters, creamy sand and water-smoothed rocks.

Very dog friendly, too, allowing for daily, wild-and-with-great-abandon romps and water play. Lily is a very happy, and well-exercised, girl.

No electricity there, but pit toilets and fresh water spigots. Pulled out the collapsible water jugs and solar shower to supplement what I had in my tank, and we stayed well hydrated and clean enough throughout.

We had beautiful daytime temps, cool nights, and no real rain until yesterday. 50 degrees when I left there this morning.

Holding tanks were full and fresh water near-empty, so first stop this morning was to secure a site for the night at the city campground in Grand Marais....so I could use their dump station without charge, and fill with fresh water. .

At the dump station, an Airstream trailer was behind me, the owners friendly and openly admiring my 9 year old Interstate. They recommended the Diner here for the best meal in town and, as I was pulling in there to park, they also pulled in, so we sat down together and shared stories over lunch. Loved it.

Jeff & Laurie, from lower Michigan, "about an hour south of the bridge". Nice folks, not on AirForums.....but they have heard of it.

Now settled in with electricity, 4G LTE, phone signal, hot showers, laundry....and cable.

Back to the forest tomorrow, as I work my way toward Whitefish Point before heading home.

Cold and rainy out, a good afternoon to catch up with everyone and watch a little TV.


Maggie

If you're lucky, you can get a lakeside site.

i believe Whitefish point is where the museum is that has all the exhibits from the Edmund Fitzgerald. We took that in and it was well worth it. Killed about half a day there.

That's exactly where the Shipwreck Museum is, Red, and you guys went there because Doug & I recommended it, do you remember that?......back that 4th of July weekend in South Dakota, I think.

I want to take the grands there, but their parents won't let me take them so far from home by myself.

I won't go back to the Museum, but want to set my feet in Whitefish Bay again....don't ask me why, cuz I don't know...it's just calling to me.

Watching MASH reruns on TV.....it is cold and raining, good to have electricity.

I had a bit of adventure the other day,,,,.took the Interstate onto one of the unpaved roads up here.....some of which are bladed and not too bad....but this one was not.

No warning signs anywhere....road became more and more narrow, parts were washed out, and then.....directly ahead of me, a gully across the road, about half filled with water, and far too deep and wide for me to cross.

Back up, Margaret Ann...NOW....speaks Doug in my head....and I did. Got us out of there, and in one piece.

Yikes!

Note to self......all side roads in the UP are not created remotely equal.
