GRAND MARAIS AND THE NANIBOUJOU LODGE

Thursday morning dawned windy and rainy, our run of sunny weather gone!  The lake by our campsite was a bit on the wild side this morning.
We didn't stay on the shore long, but climbed into the truck for a 12 mile drive to the Naniboujou Lodge for a special breakfast.  I've cooked all our meals so far, so we felt a treat was in order.
The Naniboujou was built in the 1920's as a "gentlemen's" club.  Members of this exclusive ad included Jack Dempsey and Babe Ruth.
This massive fireplace dominates the dining room which is painted in the colorful Cree style.  The reds, greens and yellows are as bright as when they were first painted, and have never been redone.
And the breakfast was excellent!

We spent our windy rainy day shopping and remembering our mom who is celebrating her birthday in heaven with Jesus.

Amazing. The colors are so pretty. I love clouds, and always think of my mom on the other side in heaven where it is sunny and so beautiful.

Your pictures of this trip have been just gorgeous. Sounds like the perfect month to travel there.
And that breakfast does look so yummy!

Thanks for sharing all the photos, as I am "living" your vacation as I view! We love the North Shore too, but don't get there very often. Sister-in-law was just up for her annual summer stint ( maybe a month or less) at Naniboujou. Next she was at the farm here, where our ceilings are much less impressive and in need of their own fresh coat of paint. Simpler palate, however.
