An old cabin that my wife would not take off her shoes as the carpet was filled with stains. What a joke for a continental breakfast . First it's located above a garage, second if you wanted coffee you had to brew it yourself after you've cleaned the pot, third you had a loaf of bread so you could make some toast, fourth there were two bananas there (there are 15 cabins) and fifth two kinds of cereal with plastic silverware that is reused. Disgusting to say the least. Stay somewhere else.

... of the houses are quite substantial while others looked like weekend retreats.
Near Harbor Springs we saw some mansions with horse paddocks. Had lunch overlooking the marina and looking back to some lovely houses. Harbor Springs is obviously a very wealthy area and a tourist place.

As predicted the weather has turned sour and it has rained or drizzled for most of the day. We had planned a quiet day so that was good for us.

... the Log Slide at Grand Sable Dunes. They are very high and very steep. Did not attempt to go down as the climb back up would have been very taxing. Tom, Mia and Torgny and Sarah met up with us here.
On to Grand Marais where we had lunch overlooking the small bay. The bakery had only recently opened and we had to read the menu from the slides on the TV as the paper menus had not yet arrived. . again the food was reasonably priced and plentiful. Potato ...
... he was in a foul mood. As he was writing us a ticket for illegal camping, I explained our situation, stating that we were not attempting not to get a free night but that we just couldn't get into a spot. He wasn’t buying it but after pleading my case for about 5 minutes he finally gave in, told us to pay and get out of there. We did just that but not after a walk down to the water to enjoy the view, sounds, and scenery. This campground has ...
... being after the camping season...in most places, this place has a lot of RV's parked here. I sure wouldn't want to be in a tent up here...way too cold! Tomorrow will be a long day as it may take about 9 hours to get to Bracebridge, our first destination. We will be there for a few days before moving on to who knows where...probably to Nicholston Dam near Alliston for a couple of days while we queue up the rest of our visiting time... More ...
