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 …
... I have been working on a chronology of her life; but what I remember now is her comment about leaving the US and 'flying to Europe'. This was the '50s and not many people had had this experience. She said in her letters; "Oh, if I had known what it was like to fly; I would have been a Stewardess." Well, she would write, send gifts, etc. about and from Germany while I was a young child. It was always like the ...
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
we were past it before we thought of taking a picture. Wish that could
be in Canada.
We began the day heading back to the shopping area of Baxter and Brainerd. We visited the local State Farm agent to get a proof of insurance to take into Canada and did some shopping at Walmart and then ate lunch in the trailer in the parking lot. While in Minnesota, we crossed the Mississippi River. Then, we drove through Minnesota to Duluth and then crossed into Wisconsin over ...
... San Juan's, why? Picked up some local beers, sold only in Wisconsin and reputed to be the "best", will report later... Leo Kotke is playing tonight in a Chautauqua tent out of town. Lyle Lovett was here awhile ago. In October there is an apple festival which draws 50,000 people. 470 people live here.

TravelPod Member ReviewsSeagull Bay Motel Bayfield
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!
