Travel Blogs from Bayfield
This morning we dedicated to doing laundry. After 4 days of traveling and the limited space on our bike, we needed to do laundry.
In Grand Marais we found a combination NAPA Auto / Laundry. This was great because not only did we need to do our Laundry but I (Dave) needed to change out a burned out head lamp on the bike. NAPA had the lamp …
Stopped to photograph a great mural that adorned a drape protecting a building under renovation, and discovered several other murals in the small town.
We carried on travelling through Superior Wisconsin and then to Duluth
MN. Just as we entered Superior we noticed a large billboard advertising
new Ford vehicles with a 20 year, 200,000 MILE warranty!! Unfortunately

Once in Wisconsin, we stopped at a visitor center called the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center just outside of Ashland. We got there almost at the 5:00 closing time, so asked where we could eat dinner in town and where we could camp for the night.

... It looks very interesting on the map. Last night we had our first rain of the trip (after 2 weeks of 90+ heat) and now it's a little windy, so we'll see what's possible after our morning coffee and smoothie.

How has this motel rated in the past?
We left Grand Marais in the morning on our continuing journey around Lake Superior by motorcycle. We found so many things to stop and see on our way to Bayfield that we were behind schedule in trying to make the motel before dark. Needless to say, we were very stressed in watching for deer plus it was in the forties when the sun went down. We arrived at the hotel after office hours but a note was left for us at the desk telling us where our room was. We entered it to find the lamps on and the room all nice and cozy and ready for us. We wish we had stayed two nights here instead of pushing on to our next destination!
