We had just three full days at the cabin but managed to pack a lot into it. I left home with a migraine that lingered for a week, but whenever I was at the beach or in the kayak, it was barely noticable. We were blessed with perfect weather and capped the trip off with a stop in Plainwell, MI (an hour from home) for ice cream on our way home. Yum!

|I have to credit Tim with this amazing picture along the|
Au Train River.
|We dismantled a fire pit at Tim's property near Grand Marais,|
carried the rocks in 5 gallon buckets to the car, made three trips
out to the main road to prevent the car from bottoming out and
rebuilt the firepit at Au Train. My back hurt for days!!

dug herself a bed in the warm sand, crawled in and went
right to sleep. Have to say - I love this picture. It
captures my girl so well.

It's a 425 mile trip up there, but I was so desperate for a weekend of refreshment that it was well worth it and fit the bill. I have another week off to look forward to in October. Those plans have changed somewhat too, but with all my reservations made, we're going to take a swing down to Brown County, Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennessee anyway and hopefully see some dazzling fall colors. That will be our next post!
