Wouldn’t you think that since I only worked 3 days this week I wouldn’t have been so tired by Friday? It really felt like a full work week, anyways it it Friday!

So continuing on from my last post, this next shop has been my favorite ever since I discovered it about 5 or so years ago. She always carries many of my favorite fabrics and colours. Every time I’ve walked into this shop I truly feel like a kid in a candy shop. Erik new I’d be a while at this shop so he went for a walk and had a little rest in the van.




It’s located in a little town called Castle Danger. I don’t know how many times we’ve driven by the State Park in Castle Danger, if you ever get the chance to drive the North Shore make sure you stop in to both the shop and the park.





The cedar trees were amazing, the gnarled roots and twisted trunks fascinated me



Moving along down the road we stopped in Grand Marais for some of Sven and Ollies Pizza
this is another little town that is well worth stopping by and visiting so many interesting little places to check out along with the beautiful scenery that surrounds Lake Superior


We took our pizza and stopped on at a rest stop further down the road for a little picnic and stone skipping.

  1. Seems that we walk the same paths. I enjoy trips up the North Shore each year. We, Tom and I, stop at all the quilt shops and parks along the way, just such a nice trip. It’s been a few years now since we’ve been to Thunderbay – about as far into Canada as we’ve been, but enjoy touring the town and enjoying the local dining. Tom is a Finn, he enjoys all things Finnish, especially his Sauna! Perhaps we will meet in Duluth one day when you guys come down for a visit. I enjoyed reading your blog.
