The Soo Flu

IMG_5925We spent six days at the Sault Ste Marie Locks between Lake Superior and Lake Huron and all I have are these three lousy boat pictures…IMG_5927


The PLAN was to see the sights at the Soo and use it as a base to explore the Eastern UP. ( A little Olympic coverage was guaranteed.)  Instead the Bacteria won the gold and sidelined Al for the duration.
The boats, some up to 1000 feet long, slipped by silently just 75 yards from our bedroom window, day and night.  Al would rise up on one elbow, whimper piteously and doze off.  Nurse Patty was steadfast, as ever, and kept sane watching the Volleyball.


  1. Aww, bummer. And I always said you two really know how to enjoy traveling. Now you'll have yet another reason to come back and enjoy all the stuff you missed.

  2. Sorry to hear you have the crud...hope Al feels better soon and you can see some sights. Thank goodness for the Olympics :). They seem to inspire everyone!

  3. Maybe that was Al's way of saying he wanted to relax and watch the Olympics:)
