Lamb's Resort

We staying in Schroeder, MN at Lamb's Resort and it was breath takingly beautiful. The Resort itself had beautiful camp sites with lovely walking paths nearby.
There are very few places in the world that I would go back to but let me tell you that the North Shore area in MN is definitely one of them!

Still at Temperance Liquors

After chuckling at the name, we went in and our son immediately fell in love with the giant bear. I inquired about the bear and learned that her husband had bought it at a trade show. She commented that she could have bought a lot of t-shirts for the same amount of money. While she didn't think much of the money spent, she did admit that it brought folks back!

Temperance Liquors

We were traveling along Lake Superior in Minnesota and stopped in the "North Shore" area.

We laughed ourselves senseless when we came upon Temperance Liquors. So we went in and asked the owner from whence the name. She laughed and said it all started with Temperance Canoes, then traders and then added the liquor.
So to answer the question, we just had to buy some wine at Temperance Liquors!

Thunder Bay Ontario Canada

While in Thunder Bay Ontario Canada we happened to be camped next to an RV with a custom paint job. We chatted with the fellow and he told us that his RV needed to be painted and the factory paint job was going to cost him about $5,000, so he asked a local artist to paint his coach to look like his home setting. Here's the catch, the local artist worked for a week on it and only charged him $500. Have to say I think the local artist completely undervalued his time and talent!
