More of the Lake Superior trip....plus a little bit more

Kevin and I really did have a great time on this years' trip. In Thunder Bay we got his clutch cable fixed and met some nice people while listening to a blues concert from across the road. It was $40 each to get into the concert, so we were content to listen from some big rocks at a Mickie Dee's. Kevin even found some Finnish ladies who shared some Italian bakery goodies with us.

Seems like half of Thunder Bay is Italian, the other half are Finns. Seems like food is something we find the best of on the road, and we were encouraged to go to the Finn club's restaraunt, the Hoito, for Finnish pancakes. Yum!

We crossed back into the United States and headed for our next big adventure, which was taking the ferry from Manitowoc, Wisconsin to Ludington, Michigan. It was a night crossing, so we did miss seeing lots of water during the day, but the sunrise over the water was spectacular.

Now came the part of the trip when we reunited with the rest of the family. Ada, Laurie, Ella and Jacob motored up to our friends house, Pat and Joe Chaput. They have a couple of houses on Lake Michigan and invited us to vacation there. While we were there we took a dune buggy ride and enjoyed lots of beach time, including a hot dog roast right there on the beach.

And, if you turn up your speakers and listen closely, you will be able to hear the song of an ancient Indian...or was it a Chinaman????
