The first leg of our trip - home to the Soo - was pretty much uneventful, but a lot of riding fun. It was a nice day and about 20 degrees warmer than last year - got up to 72 degrees! That was a plus! We also didn't hit any seagulls (see last years blog)!
After stopping in Mackinaw City for the obligatory purchase of fudge (the town was …
... point, I saw a car up ahead pull off of the shoulder back onto the road... while braking for them, I saw why they had stopped: a huge flock of sandhill cranes were milling about in a farmer's empty field. I pulled over and took a couple photos from the car. (Later on, I also saw about 3 times this many on the North Shore of Lake Huron on my way to the border.)
Misery Bay was deserted. While I met a couple in the parking lot, I never saw another soul on my ...

We arrived at 12:30 and a ship was due to arrive at 1pm. Luckily the 3 story observation deck is covered and partially enclosed. The first type of locks were built back in the early 1800's when they let large canoe's thru but the first modern one was the Davis Lock built in 1914.
The 1000 foot ship was coming from Lake Superior (high side) to the lower ...
First day of my big adventure! Pretty uneventful day. Driiving went well, got some minor cramping towards the end of the day but it was fine other than that. Not the best sightseeing weather (cloudy with some rain) but then there wasn't that much to see anyway so it was actually great for driving!
... drive up to Alpena at the head of Thunder Bay to find breakfast. The place is a ghost town on Labor Day morning. A few blocks away from the harbor we find a pizza place open for breakfast....ahhh, upper Michigan. The restaurant was filled with stuffed dead animals and fish, bears, sheep, muskies, elk, deer, marten, etc., etc. After ordering we asked the waitress about the displays, she said that the owner ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsComfort Inn Sault Sainte Marie
We only ask three things when we stay in a hotel - cleanliness, comfortable mattress and good water pressure. Unfortunately this hotel has two strikes against it. While it was very clean, the mattress was very uncomfortable along with no mattress pad and a fitted sheet that kept coming off all night long. Also we were put into a handicap accessible room and the shower height was about 5'4" tall. Not good for my husband who is 6'3" tall! Also the water pressure, like most hotels, was so low it took twice as long to rinse. The breakfast was OK though the breakfast room is quite small and some people had to eat in the lobby.
The staff was friendly and polite and allowed us to park our bike under the portico where there are security cameras.
