Great Lakes and Sault Ste Marie

We' staying at Straits State Park in Michigan. We took the car up to Sault Ste. Marie yesterday and got there *just* as the biggest Lake Boat, the Paul R Tregurtha, was entering the lock. It was going from Lake Superior to Lake Huron and needed to drop down 21 feet. That's what the lock is for. This boat only makes this trip once every week or so, so how did we luck out to get there at just the right time? If you ask Jim, he'll say, "Planning."

Yeah, right! Cosmic planning maybe. Anyway, it was cool.

Really, it *was* cool ... about 59 degrees!

going down ... On its way ...

I don't know if one of you is an Elk, but if you are, the Sault Ste Marie Elks Lodge has a super campground on the river, downstream of the locks. If you are not Elks, I recommend you join. They have some excellent campgrounds, particularly in the west.

If you don't have Canadian service enabled on your cell phone, watch your calls in this area. You could get some nasty surprises on your next bill.

We enjoy your blog, and wish you the best in your enterprises. We just joined your membership website.
