Lake Superior is a very impressive lake. It is vast and you have to keep reminding yourself that it isn't the ocean.
On Tuesday night we stayed at the Best Western motel in Grand Marais, on the shore of the lake. The only room they had left by the time we got there was a large suite that had a jacuzzi, super-king bed and balcony overlooking the lake. They did discount the room rate heavily for us, as everyone knows kiwis don't have any money. I had to work for a couple of hours in the evening and for a short time before breakfast and it was a great environment watching the lake and listening to the gulls circling as I worked.
