Our campsite

Today we took a 2 1/2 hour boat cruise along pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. It is the Lakeshore to the east and Grand Island to the West of Munising Bay, before you hit Lake Superior Grand. At this point being the widest portion of Lake Superior, 160 miles wide. The lake is the largest, deepest, clearest and supposedly the roughest, although not today. The guide gave an example of size, being that if you built a swimming pool 5' deep big enough to hold the lake content, it would be larger than the continental United States. The tour takes you past some of the most colorful rock formations in the Great Lakes region. It is a 37 mile journey that takes you past formations called Indian Head, Lovers Leap, Miners Castle. I tried to tag them in the pictures.

Since it's Friday, we decided to find a Fish Fry for dinner. We decided on a resturant called DogPatch. It was busy, we did get seated right away. We had the Seafood Buffet which has Lake Superior white fish, perch, trout and shrimp.

After dinner we drove out to Munising Falls and took a walk. We needed to walk off dinner.

Tomorrow we plan to move another 80 miles up the road to Tahquamenon Falls State Park.
