Fourth of July 2  
Greg and I made it to Grand Marais at about 8:00 pm. The drive was slow in places but not for the entire trip.

Last night we stayed at the Outpost, a very lovely and cozy little motel with a gorgeous view of Lake Superior. I'm blown away by the beauty of the lake. Standing on the shore is very much like being at the ocean -- small waves, seagulls, a pebbly beach. I feel more delighted to be away from home for a while than I expected.

All around, tall pine, aspen, and birch trees remind me of camping trips I've taken in the southwest. The weather's good so far, too: sunny, breezy, and just slightly cool.

Now if we can only manage to find a real cup of coffee somewhere...

We regret not having thought to bring our passports. Might have been fun to venture briefly into Canada. Next time for sure.
