After their return to the work-a-day world, we added another labor saving device: a powered door opener on our garage/storage building. Bob has put in many of these in the past but this was the hardest to complete because of some binding in the tracks that had to be adjusted out.
Last weekend summer finally got here to Makinen. It was so hot and humid (compared to normal) that we actually turned our A/C in the motorhome on for about an hour one evening. Paige’s mom came for an overnight visit and stayed two nights to enjoy the hot weather. The forecast was for continuing humidity into Monday, so we took another road trip, this time along Lake Superior’s north shore to Naniboujou Lodge, near Grand Marais, and Grand Portage National Monument near the Canadian border.
Both were historical and quite interesting (especially the dessert at the lodge). For more details see http://naniboujou.com/ and
The return trip along the shore was cool, where the fog was rolling in, and hot away from the big lake.
We are planning another touristy trip in early August when we plan to take Valentina to Winnipeg for a few days.
