A day at the Waterfront

We slept in and woke to a beautiful but cool morning. We decided to spend time at the waterfront because there was so much we did not see yesterday.

The waterfront is actually on St. Mary's River, the body of water that connects Lake Huron and Lake Superior. We saw Lake Huron yesterday and I didn't realize we had moved beyond.

We checked out the mall - there is a really good-sized mall at the waterfront! We did lots of walking and did not spend a penny!

Then we walked along the waterfront. Here are a few pictures:
The USA side of the river
A neat shade/shelter structure
There seemed to be people living in the teepee but no signs telling us what was going on. 

I think the temperature only reached 73F or 23C but the sun was very warm.
The ship on the right is a museum.
We ate at HD Sports Grill - they had many TVs and one was about 6' high and 14' wide. After a good lunch, we walked along the waterfront back to the jeep and went to the downtown area which is just a couple of blocks north.

I didn't find anything I just had to have at the yarn shop but...
that was not the case at the quilt shop.  Life's a Stitch was a great shop with super nice ladies working there.

I found lots of neat things - all for my stash. I really needed some blues. The stripes and print are the same line.

This red and white will become a backing.

We are tired so the rest of the afternoon was spent on the couch - we each have our own! We may go back to the waterfront for the sunset later tonight - the sun goes down about 9:15 pm. 

Tomorrow we will cross the big bridge and head for northwestern Wisconsin. It will be a very long travel day for us so it's a good thing we are resting up! We will visit family for the weekend and then head home on Monday.

  1. It's no surprise to me that you need an R+R day ... you two have been on the go, seeing and doing so much. Enjoy the rest of your travels.
