We Love Lake Superior!

We just got home from completing the Circle Tour. We along with our two best friends decided this would be a great ride on our Gold Wings. The weather was pleasantly chilly which was a change from Arkansas’ hot weather. As we were planning for cold we did not even think about mosquitoes. At Whitefish Point, one of our favorite stops, along with staying in a lighthouse, they have man-eating More

A Great Trip!

I, along with my husband Kurt and two of our friends, rode the Circle Tour on Honda Gold Wing motorcycles. It was a lot of fun, as well as educational! Favorite spots include Whitefish Point, Michigan, which has a still-functioning lighthouse. It is close to the site where the Edmund Fitzgerald went down in a storm on November 10, 1975, with none of the crew surviving. The Great Lakes Shipwreck More

The next day we golfed in Brimley overlooking the lake and the “1,000 footers.” We camped in “The Soo” to the pleasant sounds of ship horns heading into and out of the locks. After a morning of more ship viewing and stocking up on provisions, we had More

Great Scenery

My husband and I have been to Lake Superior five times, beginning in September 2005. During that trip with my brother and sister-in-law, we stayed in Michigan, visiting Sault Ste. Marie, Tahquamenon Falls, Munising and Copper Harbor among other places. We especially enjoyed going through the locks in Sault Ste. Marie and the boat ride to see Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Out time was limited, so we were able to More
