But, we also noticed that the place has lost some of its charm--we haven't been there for over 10 years!
We back-tracked toward the hotel . . . and checked out more closely a restaurant we had driven by: Studebaker's It had ...

We entered the lock from St. Mary's River and had to rise up to meet the level of Lake Superior. We passed under the International Bridge which connects Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan with Sault Sainte Marie, Ontario. While on the water, we passed some very impressive freighters including the American Integrity which, at 1000 feet, is one of the longest ships working ...
