It has been far to long since my last post. We have been moving slowly across the Upper Peninsula and Lake Superior area into Wisconsin and Minnesota.
We made our trip into the UP landing in St Ignace at the Tiki RV Park. It is a Passport America park and St Ignace is located right on Lake Huron. We really liked the slow pace of the town and ended up staying three weeks. The town is a small town with no traffic lights. A traffic jam happens every Saturday night about 10:15 pm when the summer fireworks are over. It only lasts for about 10 minutes and due to the location of them (over the harbor) you can see them from just about all over town. The park is almost downtown and close to plenty of places to eat.
While there we went on some excursions. The first was to Whitefish Point to the Marine Museum. A very moving and well presented exhibit of all the shipwrecks of the area. Everyone can relate to this one.
Our main reason for coming here was to take the Pictured Rocks cruise. It was nice. Over our four days there we picked the best day for a cruise and it turned out very nicely.
We went to Houghton, MI and stayed in the Houghton City Park. Now I'm here to tell you that this is a nice park in downtown. Houghton is a college town with lots of restaurants, a Walmart within 1 mile, and PO and other government buildings close. It is well up the peninsula which allows day trips as far as Copper Harbor which is at the end. One word of caution is make sure you have fuel before you leave town as it is scarce up the peninsula and/or very expensive.
We ended up staying here 12 days because of the nice peaceful site.
Our next stop is Ashland, WI to the Kehrer RV Park owned by the City. While it is right in town you are on the water with nice views. Our reason for being here was to go on the Apostle Island Cruise. The cruise goes out of Bayfield, WI which was only about 40 min from the park. The weather was pretty active with either wind or rain coming through. We picked the best day we could and dealt with it. The weather while out changed 3 times. From fair to cloudy and windy with 3-5' waves to fair again.
We took a lot more pictures at each place, but not wanting a War and Peace blog post only selected a few.
We are currently in Grand Marais, MN. That will be next time. We love to travel slowly and see a few sights along the way. We like to eat along the way and are enjoying the local fish servings. :)
