Picture of Our Keweenaw Outing
Today the temps were in the 40's, the sun was shining and we rolled out of our drive at 10:30 a.m. bound for Copper Harbor. Took the lake route, driving to Gay, then Lac La Belle and finally Copper Harbor. We stopped for coffee and a bathroom break at the Bear Belly Bar & Grill overlooking Lac La Belle Lake. Pictured are my Dad and Sweetie. Note the bear and beaver on the pine log above the bar.
Other scenes are along Lake Superior's shoreline and The Holy Transfiguration Skete, Society of St. John. The monastery is located at 6500 State Hwy. M26, three miles east of Eagle River. The brothers operate The Jampot across the street with a wide selection of jams, confections, fruitcakes and bread. The business is well known throughout this area and does a booming mail order business as well. Google The Jampot for more information. Their products are expensive as far as I'm concerned but their more than 25 years on the Keweenaw coastline is a testament to their determination.
I could write forever about the various natural and man made attractions in this area and our history. But my fingers are fatiqued and it's time for my Dad's backrub!!
