(This blog being sent on Tuesday when aircard signal was available)We drove west through the U.P. of Michigan as the temps rose and it got HOT…. we had the dash air on so we were comfy, but the winds died down and it got HOTTER. Wow!
We were heading west through Wakefield, Bessemer, Ironwood and on into Wisconsin again. My GPS showed a small harbor with a campground way up to the north on the shore of Lake Superior called Saxon Harbor… so we drove there. It is a tiny harbor village with about 10 cottages, 2 small taverns, and a harbor with about 50 boat slips, 2 rings of a county park campground and a lovely beach with high red sandy cliffs that stretch on for miles and miles.
After we cooled off a bit, we left the dogs in the rig and headed out the Tracker for a ride around the area. Five miles down a road that ambled along the cliffs of Lake Superior was another county campground, back into Michigan. It was called Little Girl Point campground. We scoped it out and saw about 5 sites we would consider for tomorrow night! It was only $14 a night there with electric, but the sites are something to behold. Here is one:
They are all in a row along the steep high cliffs overlooking the waters of the lake… I think we will be moving in the morning! haha
The shoreline is a high cliff of red clay sand
Some teenagers were jumping off the harbor edging into the deeper waters.. gosh that water was ice cold, I bet they were catching their breath with each plunge into the icy depths!
No air card signal here, no cell phone service either. But there is a well-used pay phone over near the pavilion, and we can see why. Nobody can use their cell phones! LOL
Our GPS wanted us to travel around the beach and up a high gravelly hill to get back down the to main highway when we leave here. But we decided to check it out with the Tracker. WOW! We would have never made it in the motorhome! It was all fresh new gravel, just pushed up against the trees and no guardrails or foundation of any kind. Whew! Good thing we checked it out, NEVER trust a GPS!
That is it for the weekend, we will see what tomorrow will bring…
