From our visit in 2012 we fondly remember Grand Marais as the location of the first gas station west of Muskallonge and a restaurant where we grabbed a meal before hurrying off to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. This time we lingered a little. Now we can tell you that it is home to Woodland Park Campground which boasts a laundry room and is situated between Lake Superior and the First Lutheran Church whose chimes ring every half hour from 8AM to 8:30PM. It’s also home to the Lake Superior Brewing Company restaurant which was out of many many menu items but served a decent Chicken Tenders meals and a nice Pale Ale. They didn’t offer dessert but directed us to the Breakwall Bakery and Cafe where we enjoyed a luscious Cherry Cheesecake and coffee. We must go back sometime to try the Fudge Puddles! On the three block walk back to the T@B we stopped by the gas station/grocery and restocked our larder after locating their geocache! Grand Marais is definitely on our map now. We’ll be back to explore this tiny town more thoroughly!

Magerøya Island

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.
