We wandered into Rogers City to explore a bit and to see if we could find a place with free wifi. We got some delicious mochas at The Painted Lady and got so engaged in conversation that we hardly took advantage of the wifi opportunity. We also found a couple of useful items for purchase! Next we wandered off on a successful geocache quest then stopped by the hardware store on an unsuccessful quest for Thermacell refills. But at the hardware store the owner recommended we stop by Plath’s Meats which we did. We bought some delicious looking stuff from this establishment that had been in business more than one hundred years. Shortly after that we checked the weather and realized that severe weather was on its way. We scurried back to camp, stowed the outdoor furniture and took shelter. It’s been ten hours of rain, mostly heavy rain. We’ve used the hot plate in the tent to make coffee and tea and eaten cold meals that we’ve prepared during lulls in the downpour. Meanwhile we’ve been grateful for our videos on our LaCie Fuel Hard Drive. We’ve watched Part Two of Ken Burns’ Lewis & Clark, the Little Rock episode of Tiny House Nation, and The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy plus a bit of reading and games playing. Here’s to a pretty day tomorrow!

Magerøya Island

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
