This is the Harbor in Grand Marias, Minnesota. Lake Superior. My daughter Hollie and I try to go here every year in August. It gives us energy for the coming year. She is a teacher so she gets relaxed before she starts her new school year. The splashing of the waves has to be the most calming sound in the universe.

Hollie and I are watching the sun set looking out at the Harbor in Grand Marias. We dont do a lot when we go to Grand Marias. We sit alot by the water and read our books and take naps. We think that Grand Marias is pretty close to what Heaven might be like.

This is the view from the deck at the Hotel. There is a class for Kayaking. It looks like fun but have never tried it yet. Maybe next time.

Hollie and I like to hike along the Lake. This is looking at the Light House in Grand Marais. The sun is getting ready to go down and it is so peaceful and beautiful.

This is my 2nd favorite place to visit, it is the "World's Best Doughnut" Shop. It sits right next door to the book store. So I get up every morning buy "SOME" doughnuts go and sit by the lake and read my bible in the quiet hour of the morning as the water is lapping on the shore and the sea gulls singing. The doughnuts are just so yummy, you cant have just one.

This is one of our favorite places to visit on vacation. It is a book store "Dury Lane" and it sits by the Lake. It is the cutest little shop and it is crammed full of books!! We go in there everyday and browse and buy a book. I have found some of my favorite books in this shop. Then we go outside and read and watch the water.

Wonderful photos. I am so glad to see that you enjoyed the fabulous views of Lake Superior while you were up here. That quilt shop just outside Silver Bay is cute, isn't it? Come back soon and come back often!

Shelley, Thanks for visiting my blog and for your sweet comment.

This looks like the perfect vacation. I may have to check this area out. My husband and I would love to take a motorcycle trip next summer up by the lakes. We are from Missouri and I think I could survive the drive if we stopped several times.
Love your blog too!
