From Canada to Michigan

Are we in France?? New Hampshire....who?

64 °F

After yet another beautiful hike, we packed up and said our goodbyes to New Hampshire and Shane's two pals from the campsite, Brad (Wizard) and Drew. Once 'landing' in Montreal, we found out the Canadial National Railway Museum was just around the corner from our campsite. It is the biggest and best we've ever seen ( and we've seen a few).... The day in Montreal was beautiful. We spent the whole time in the old part and loved it, more Keith and I, (Shane wanted to go back to the KOA and swim). You really do feel like you're in Europe, only they're nicer:). On Monday, we headed West, stopping in to see Ottawa, Canada's capital. The architecture and gardens were amazing and the roads were a little small for the RV.
On we drove.....our destination, Sleeping Bear Dunes in Michigan. Laurie and John, THANK YOU!!! What a place! Half the fun was getting there, we stopped for cherries ( cherry capital of the US), but found out that season ends in July..... The Mackinac Bridge was impressive. Once we arrived at the fabulous state campground, we rode our bikes staight to the lake. When we saw that clear water and the giant dunes, we said.....'New Hampshire who?' I thought we were in the Carribean until my toe touched the water. Swimming made all the hours of driving disappear. Love Michigan. We all climbed a 450 foot dune that seemed like a 90 degree drop going down, and worse coming back up. We HIGHLY recommend this place, everything about it was great. Shane met some great Michigan kids, Ben, Jack, and Gracie- who came w/some great parents as well. The rain made it easier to say good bye, we'd love to come back.
Now we are driving driving driving. Michigan to Wisconsin to Minnesota to ......North Dakota! We stopped in Superior, Wisconsin for the Dragon Boat Festival, a big rowing party on the water, did a little laundry in Fargo.....the sunset from the road went on for hours and the sky seems to be growing in front of us.......KBS

If the sky seems BIG now- wait for Montana! All is well here. Parker has been taking care of your beach- but we have had a LOT of rain in the last two days. Enjoy!
