I am sitting in on a couch in front of the fireplace looking out at Lake Superior. I can hear the waves and see the rain in the distance. Did you know that Lake Superior contains 10% of the fresh water in the world?
Yesterday we drove south along the north shore of Lake Superior. We entered the U.S. and stopped at Grand Portage National Monument. It is a fort on the shore of Lake Superior where the Northwest Company held its fur trading rendezvous from about 1790 to 1803.
We are staying at a resort called Bluefin Bay on Lake Superior. Our condo has floor to ceiling windows looking out at the lake which is only about 20 feet away. I could spend days here with no problem. Last night be got a pizza and had it for dinner by the fire.
