The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum was the main attraction for me in going to Whitefish Point, but once I got there and saw the complex included the oldest active light on Lake Superior, Whitefish Point Lighthouse, I was definitely not going to miss it. The light was first lit in 1849, although the present tower was […]

While I was staying at Tahquamenon State Park, I knew I wanted to see the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point, only about 14 miles from Rivermouth Campground.  I had become fascinated with what I’d seen about shipwrecks’ role in shaping Michigan’s history and the deeply personal effect they’ve had on local communities. Whitefish Point is […]

I had heard about the amazing sunsets at Brimley State Park and certainly found that to be true while camping there, and I also knew I wanted to see the Soo Locks in nearby Sault St. Marie.  I wound up loving that so much I did the Soo Locks Boat Tour. But I’ll always be grateful […]

I was excited to see The Hiawatha approach the docks and Captain Gordie welcomed me […]

Ford Escape - Towing Issues

Ford Escape - Towing Issues, Setbacks

It’s raining now, but it’s a nice, soft and gentle rain.  Other than the sounds of the drops on my roof, the campground is quiet.  After the Ford Escape drama yesterday, I am safe in my motorhome, I assume my car will be fixed and I have a free rental car in the meantime. I fully understand and appreciate how […]

Ford Escape - Towing Issues, RVing

Today, while turning a corner, I heard a jolting noise and the car stopped – just past the intersection, but still blocking other traffic trying to turn.  My first thought was “Oh, oh, I had hoped my transmission problem was fixed, but apparently it’s rearing it’s ugly head again!” Just last night I received an email […]
