Have I mentioned that I love Lake Superior? I went to school near Superior, and my favorite camping trips have involved the lake. Hubby even popped the question at Lake Superior. I love the rocky cliffs, the sea caves, and the sandy beaches. I love the lighthouses and the stories of storms and shipwreck. I love Superior's vast expanse.
But enough about my love affair with the best great lake...you came for the pictures, right?
Our trip began at Boy Scout camp, where AKD was just finishing up a week being a boy, earning merit badges in Lifesaving and Climbing.
The next day we headed to the ferry in Bayfield, which delivered us to the town of La Pointe on Madeline Island.
cliff jumping. We also swam through sea caves and underwater tunnels.
We took a hike along the shoreline, stopping at beaches along the way. This one had lots of rock cairns, so of course we had to build our own.
And Bubby found this itty-bitty froggy.
At this beach, the boys made a "raft" out of driftwood.
And Bubby learned to skip rocks.
Oh, what a great time we had! I hope you enjoyed your holiday celebrations, too :)
