Feeling Superior

The day started with a traditional Norwegian breakfast. Bread, cheese, fruit and other European style items were on offer. However we skipped the pickled Herring.

Our first stop of the day was Split Rock Lighthouse. Built in the 1900's the lighthouse served to keep ships clear of the coastline of Lake Superior. Sadly many ships were sunk here prior to the lighthouses erection.

The views were stunning... not sure I can say the same about this funny pair!

We saw the lighthouse from a different angle further up the scenic highway.

A couple of hours into our mamoth journey we stopped at Amnicon Falls State Park Wisconsin.

The Lower & Upper falls were viewed from an island, perfect for a morning stroll. Doggies would have loved it.

The tea coloured water is stained by a plant root at the river source, not by algae or Iron ore.

After a brutal 6.5 hour drive ( including a time zone change ) we arrived in Sault Ste Marie, litterally on the Canadian border.

As it was after 9 we happily stopped at " China Cate" a trip advisor rated chinese cafe..
On to the local Best Western , for a load of laundry, a whirlpool bath & a very late blog entry.

Hollie & I are just finishing this as our driver snores !

Goodnight all xxxxx
