A beautiful day in Grand Marais

What an absolutely gorgeous day! Started sunny and near 50 degrees. The high was probably around 65 or so. We spent the morning on the Gunflint Trail. There are areas of wonderful color! We made a stop at Loons Nest. The owner was very cordial and was painting ornaments while we were there. Then we stopped and hiked back to see the moose but would you believe they weren't there!

Only one quilt shop today but it was nice! Crystal's Log Cabin Quilts in Grand Marais is in a log cabin. Crystal and her helper were great. They helped me pick fabric for a project. Crystal was inspired by the fabric that I chose so it was a good time of sharing. Then she showed me a demonstration that she will do later in the shop - making a quilt from 10 fat quarters and cutting it into 8 placemats. None of the placemats is the same but all coordinate. Neat idea!

After a picnic lunch, we walked around town and did a little shopping. We spent some time sitting by the harbor on Lake Superior. Then we came back to the motel to put our feet up for awhile and ended up sitting outside - it is just too nice to be inside!

Dinner tonight was fish and chips at Dockside. We'd love to go back again!

It's about 9 PM now and we just returned from a walk down by the harbor. I wore my lighted hat (thanks, Jim!) so I could see in the dark and cars could see me.

Hope we have a better Wi-Fi in Canada so we can share photos.
