June 16 - Sault Ste. Marie

Cloudy and overcast and cool this morning. So we left our digs (probably the worst room we've stayed in, courtesy of Ward) thinking of breakfast down the road. Nothing in Rossport, but we did make some photos along the shore of Lake Superior.

June16-1June16-1 We drove on to Schreiber - nothing. What a sad town. All restaurants that had been in business were shuttered, but with chipboard. The next town was Terrace Bay, where I knew of a nice little bakery. Alas, it was also a place of the past. But there was a restaurant open at a motel in the town. It was very nice, good breakfast, good prices. We then backtracked a little to check out Aguasobon Falls. It was to be photographed only from a lookout on a great boardwalk, but from above.

June16-2June16-2 Our next stops were around Marathon, a distance along the highway. We made photos at a small lake, the Superior beach, and this small cascade beside a dusty gravel road.


From here it was a long drive away from Superior views, through White River and on to Wawa. There my friend Ward was able to find another friend.

June16-4June16-4 The drive through Lake Superior Provincial Park yielded no images. The light conditions were not at all good. We did make a couple stops south of the park. These provided some decent conditions, including this location from which I've made images in past trips.

June16-5June16-5 At this stop, I met a Swiss family who have been on the road in their motor home for one year. I helped them  by taking some photos for them in celebration of that one full year on the road. Here is a picture of Elfie and Dominic (I hope I spelled their names correctly) and their daughter. I had a great time meeting them and taking some photos for them.

June16-6June16-6 Then we carried on to Sault Ste. Marie to a room at Quattro - a large suite with a sitting area and a kitchenette. This is our best room of the whole trip, and at a reasonable price. Tomorrow is our last leg of our photographic journey. Ward just booked his flight out on Monday afternoon (warning to Sharron).
