Lake Superior-Paradise8:30 PM
Sunday we spent the day in Mackinac City with some of my family and it rained off and on all day long. It was awesome because it cooled everything down and at the same time, each time it started dripping, we would just head into another gift shop. I love cheesy tourist spots, Kyle and I have about five Mackinac magnets and shot glasses, we are like an old couple. Of course my mother informed me that I did not match as soon as she saw me, but matching is overrated right?
We took these pictures on the way back to the camp site. This is a little scenic lookout of Lake Superior in the little town of Paradise, Michigan. I loved driving through this little town! At one point they had a blueberry festival that we stopped at and it was actually a small art fair by the town hall. Inside, they had a blueberry pancake breakfast going on and they were selling muffins and pies, yum! Dan and I ended up getting some horse radish that was amazing with our camp food later in the week.
Kyle and I were discussing which of the Great Lakes we loved the most. I had always been partial to Lake Michigan, but we both agreed that Lake Superior is beautiful. We have seen it where it was really choppy with huge waves, and then really smooth and still, almost like glass. Some of my family lives in the UP near Iron Mountain, one of the areas that we have not been to yet, and we are definitely going to make a point to go that way next time. Don't get me wrong, I love Oak Park, I love working in the city, but I really love the UP.
