Today we went to Whitefish Point. The wind was very strong. There were four freighters anchored in the bay to the South of the point and we assume that it was because the winds were so strong that they couldn't get through the locks at the Soo. We were there yesterday and they were having trouble because the wind was really bad. We walked on the beach and the wind felt like our legs were being sanded. We picked up some rocks and then decided to leave the rest of them for other people and get out of the wind.
After we left Whitefish Point we head to Tahquanamon Falls. We knew that we didn't want to try the boat over to the lower falls so we went right past them and went to the upper falls. It was a little rainy but it cleared up enough so that we didn't get wet and I got some beautiful pictures. This one was taken from an observation point along the river. There are stairs down to the top of the falls but I didn't think my knee would make it back up so we didn't go down. But if you ever get the chance you should do it. There are so many beautiful places to see in Michigan that it would take a life time to see them all but the falls are way up there toward the top of the list.
But tomorrow it's back to reality. We're heading for home.
