Endless summer...

Just like last year, our final trip of the summer was up to the sailboat on Lake Superior. The kids are always in awe of the "big lake" and all of the adventures that were in store.

Our first morning, we drove from Ashland to Bayfield and spent the morning at Blue Vista Farm picking blueberries and enjoying the wonderful setting.





We took the ferry over from Bayfield, Wisconsin to Madeline Island.


Across the island we arrived at our own little piece of heaven at Big Bay State Park. Several hours were spent burying ourselves in the sand, hunting for rocks and generally just relaxing on a picture perfect afternoon.

We got back to Ashland just in time for a late afternoon sail.



We came in to watch the sunset at the beach.


On the way home we made a stop at Jay Cooke State Park. It's always a gorgeous hike with lots of climbing over rocks and roots with spectacular views.
