This will be a short bullet point list of what we did on our trip with photos. I’ll keep updating the post throughout our trip so that everything is in one place.
Day 1: left church and drove to Black Forest State Park in Wisconsin. Couldn’t get our electricity to work so we slept in our camper with no power. 😂
Finished driving to Duluth. Found a man to help us with our electric problems. Met up with my parents and older brother.
Got some parts for our camper. Went and ate with family at Do North Pizzeria. Got settled into our campground Fond Du Lac.
We’re right on a canal. It’s gorgeous. My brother caught a GIANT Northern in two casts but we forgot a net. Tried to get it onto land but the 10lb line snapped. He got a way. 😒🐟🎣
We sat around the camp fire just chatting while Dad tried to catch the legendary fish.
My little brother came by after he got off work and we sat and chatted after Mom, Dad and Brother Josh left for the night.
Slept in our camper WITH air conditioning. 👏🏻
Day 3: First day to explore Duluth. Goals: Pier, Maritime Museum, tasty food… And we’ll see what else?
The weather wasn’t what we were planning or a expecting. So our plans changed some.
Uncle Louis Cafe: they make their own maple syrup! 🤤😋😘 Mom and I split a breakfast platter and Josh got these beautiful banana pancakes.
Great Lakes Aquarium: fish, waterfowl, and wildlife from the Great Lakes. Thoroughly enjoyed learning more about these big bodies of water that help our country flourish in ways we don’t even realize. Also, otters are cute.
Russ Kendall Smokehouse & Cheese & Northshore drive: while we were at breakfast a gentleman suggested this place. Wow! The restaurant wasn’t open but we bought some smoked fish and cheese and jelly from the store.
Beach by the French River (Ryan rd & scenic Northshore)
Grilling at the campground with family.

Day 5: rendezvous with Mom & Dad to get treats at a bakery (little bro works there)
Lunch at Little Angie’s

Day 5: local sight seeing… Also… We bought a giant rooster and a knight. And then we got locked out of our camper and had to call a locksmith.
Boating & fishing
Day 6: drive home
It’s Sunday and we’ve unpacked. Freyja doesn’t like the giant rooster.
