After art class, I headed off to Linden Hills Park to pick up the girls after camp. I brought some snacks with me as they had a tight schedule and I had to get Charlotte to her to swim team at the YMCA by 5:15, then Jill fed the twins and dropped Camille off for her swim team before heading to a work meeting. When Ben got off work, he came to pick them up and we had a small window of time to visit before Camille finished and then I came back home.
Friday was a busy day with a drive through Houghton and on through a tunnel of forest trees and outcroppings of deep, gray rock and views of sparkling lakes along the route to Copper Harbor. We drove to a scenic overlook on Brockway Mountain and got a good view of Copper Harbor, a quaint little town with a population of 125, known as the Gateway to Isle Royale National Park.
On the way back home, we stopped at Quincy’s in Dollar Bay for lunch. They wanted to take me by the Gay Bar (the bar in the small community of Gay) but the road was blocked for construction.
A Sampling of the Beautiful Waterfalls
I was on the road this morning by 9 am, ready for the long six-hour drive back home. It was uneventful and I decided that I have now seen the scenic routes and will just hit the highways in the future in hopes of shortening the drive.
