Ice Floes in June on Lake Superior

Travel Day - St Ignace MI to Rapid River MITravel Day - St Ignace MI to Rapid River MI

unlike our beautiful travel day along Lake Michigan a few days ago. . .

today it is drizzly and foggy. . .so nothing too exciting to show you. . .

Had a short trip to the Vagabond Resort,

a Passport America park in Rapid River MI. . .

now, I would call it more of a campground, than a resort. . .

but they were very accommodating,  and changed us to a larger site

the minute they saw what we were in. . .a very lovely overnight stay.


We unhooked the jeep, and headed off for a day trip right away. . .

we had heard, and been told by a RV friend, Marilu, that there were

still ice floes on Lake Superior. . .an unusual occurrence this late in the season

and we wanted to see if for ourselves. . .

this was a once in a lifetime opportunity for us to see ice on

a Great Lake as we never plan to be here in the winter. . .no way!

with our day at Lake Superior, we have now at least laid eyes on

all five of the Great Lakes (bucket list). . .

but by no means have we even begun to explore all

this area has to offer. . .we could spend years here,

and never see it all. . .it has been a great experience to see each and every one.

til next time,

Janice and Dave
