Our last night on our trip around Lake Superior. Pulled into a sweet spot for the night. Our dogs had been champs when it came to our neighbour's little dog that loved barking at them all the time. We mused on how far they've come along on these 2 weeks being able to be with other dogs, running kids & loud motors. GOOD DOGGIES! After a long day of [...]
We left Legendary Waters and drove on toward Munising - the home stretch has begun! The internet wasn't available, we hadn't booked a campsite ahead because up until today, campgrounds were everywhere. Now when we needed one, there was NOTHING in sight. It would be dark soon. Arguing with each other, I drove off the road to chill out by the Lake. It was a surprisingly beautiful spot, from which [...]
After 2 days of interesting creations (see A Very Bad Day & Thunder Bay KOA) we arrived in a beautiful spot in Grand Marais Bay, Minnesota, and lived 3 glorious days soaking up the diversity of nature around us. How much glorious living? . . . you might ask? There was one night of viewing nature's spectacular pink and orange lightning show over dark blue Lake Superior An evening meal of delicious [...]
you were unstoppable like this? We are at The beautiful Rainbow Falls in Northern Ontario....the power and drive of water cascading through these rocks makes us wonder....what would it be like to be unstoppable?
One night. Great dog park. So happy to leave the next morning & proud that we got ready with such prowess. I even cleaned all the bugs and guck off the Airstream windows, so we were all shiny, bright and eager to move on! We did. And one of the stabilizing jacks was still stabilizing while we drove away and heard this twisting metal sound. Yup, Stabilizing Jack [...]
One day was just kinda creepy and nothing flowed. We drove repeatedly to several dead end spots, locking ourselves into interesting places where turning a 25' trailer around was difficult. One place was a canyon I wanted to visit. But on the drive, there were no signs, no apparent exits to take. We kept seeing Las Vegas-feel type signs for a zip lining place, but we weren't in [...]
One of the great things about traveling with no precise destination is the surprise of stumbling upon outrageous beauty! We found this space as part of Rainbow Falls Provincial Park at Rossport Provincial Park down the road. The large smoothed rocks emerging from the cool shallows of Lake Superior reminded us of the artist Henry Moore's sculptures.
After teaching classes in Sudbury we pulled our Airstream Serenity trailer up to a sweet spot near Blind River, Ontario, at Lake Lauzon Resort and Marine. That night we were attacked by swarms of black flies while taking the dogs for an evening walk! Unbeknownst to us they were the notorious black flies who inject you with some kind of anaesthetic, so you don't feel their pokes & then [...]
