Up North Getaway, First Day
Here it is--the north end of the Mackinac Bridge, our entry into the Upper Peninsula and a few well-earned vacation days.
Does it look like a lot of "nothing"? That's what I love about it. No blah-blah-blah at all, just trees and bogs and little rivers and big sky.
Here's our home away from home, the Superior Hotel in Grand Marais. The plants in Bess Capogrossa's front window add to the homey look and feel of the place.
These little roses always seem to me like the emblem of Grand Marais.
Even on a cloudy morning, a Grand Marais sunrise is beautiful. For vacation we trade our home lake, Lake Michigan, for our home-away-from home lake, Lake Superior.
More vacation photos to come, including Sarah's birthday. Also, bookstore and book news from Up Up North.
