Apostle Islands

Ride to Raspberry Island
We had a wonderful (almost) two weeks near Bayfield, WI and the Apostle Islands.  Having the view of water and islands out the window and from the campsite, great weather and the crisp clean air was truly living the dream.  We took a lot of walks around Bayfield and the harbor and thoroughly enjoyed the quaint little town.  We drove around to various places to hike and enjoy the sound of the waves crashing on the beach.

Raspberry Island Lighthouse
Saturday afternoon was spent taking a boat ride to Raspberry Island to see a restored lighthouse.  We were on the island 2 hours so we had time to hike to a beach and enjoy a great view of the water and other islands.

Sundays activity was taking a little drive for a hike to see the sea caves carved by waves along the Lake Superior shore and spend some time on a beach.

Our main concentration on this stop was to spend a lot of time just relaxing and taking it all in.

It's time to move on to Houghton, MI now where we'll spend a couple of days roaming the Keweenaw peninsula.  Another one of our favorite places of all time.
