Marty and Donna were up from the Bay City area, and it was once again time for our annual trip to Copper Harbor to celebrate Independence Day. We packed our food, clothing and other necessities into the Traverse and headed down our road toward Eagle Harbor on July 3rd.
As you can see, the town was hopping. We made a right turn onto Hwy. 26. . .
passed the old school where we were married. . .
and drove out of Eagle Harbor.
As we made our way up the curvy road,
we enjoyed glimpses of Lake Superior. . .
and Lupines along the way.
One last curve. . .
and we arrived in Copper Harbor.
We turned left and drove down this short street. . .
to our motel on the left.
Good old number 25!
It was good to be back for 2 nights.
Number 25 got a new refrigerator and now has a microwave!
It also got a new bedspread - an improvement over the old one that had an attached bedskirt (i.e. trip hazard).
The "had-seen-better-days" curtains hadn't been changed, but who cares about the curtains when you have this view?
Stepping out onto the deck - looking left. . .
and looking right.
Ahhhh. Love it.
Steve unloaded the vehicle and we caught up with Marty and Donna (Number 19). We decided on an early dinner, so we headed uptown. . .
to The Mariner.
Unfortunately, the migraine headache I had been fighting all day got the best of me here, so my day came to an abrupt end. Thus, no sunset photos this year. It was a little hazy that evening, so I heard there wasn't much of a sunset anyway. Thankfully, I was better the next day, so we were able to participate in the parade again. Stay tuned for Part 2.
All is well in the Keweenaw.
