Sunset Motel on the Bay
Travel Blogs from Munising
Today we started our Lake Superior Loop heading west from Grand Marais, MI. We spent the enitire day along Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. We took the 2pm cruise to see Pictured Rocks from the water and it was well worth it. We watched a beautiful sunset and spent the night at a nice motel overlooking the water in Munising.
... views and sensational sunset. Following the cruise, we picked up take-out pasties for supper on our way back to our campground. Pasties are a type of pie that miners used to take with them to work in their lunch buckets - filled with potatoes, rudabagas and meat- and are a specialty in Michigan's Upper Penninsula (UP)
... that I just cannot resist. I keep hoping to see the Aurora Borealis, but unfortuntately, it is probably the wrong time of year for this. However, it does seem to be the right time of year for trees changing color. They are just beginning to change here and are getting prettier as we go further north. We once saw the most beautiful fall colors anywhere on the Upper Peninsula, but this was in October, and we are too early for the peak this year.
Had a great day 'sightseeing' around Munising. Waterfalls are beautiful in this area. Took a cruise to view the 'Picture Rocks' from the water. It was sunny when we left, but a little foggy right by the rocks. We're hunkered down in Marquette at the Tourist Park Campground for one night then plan on heading up the Keweenaw Peninsular.
Taking our time driving through the U.P. Such a pretty area and so much to see. It rained this morning but cleared in the afternoon. As we drove through Curtis, we noticed the 'Peaceful People' at the beginning of homeowner's driveways. Then we saw an entire community of them. See pictures. Tomorrow we plan on seeing the 'Picture Rocks'.
How has this motel rated in the past?
Very nice motel right on the water, The room was clean and the staff were friendly. Lots of extras - outside tables and chairs, grills & charcoal, and shufleboard. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the lawn just outside of our room.
