I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in Grand Marais lately. This weekend there was a homecoming football game on Friday night and dance on Saturday night. Our house in town was filled to the brim with kids on both nights. On Saturday night there were over 20 of them at one time for photos. I was happy when Sunday rolled around and we were able to get out of the house and enjoy time outside.
There are so many places to explore around Grand Marais no matter which direction you choose to go. Today we decided to check out Cut Face Creek since I had never explored there. There wasn’t much water so Abby’s friend and I walked through the culvert that goes beneath Highway 61, kind of creepy, a little bit wet but lots of fun. We didn’t go too far up the river as Josh and his friend wanted to go fishing at Cascade River.
We got back in the car and headed West to Cascade. West is the direction people from Grand Marais use to describe what most people refer to as South or towards Duluth, Minnesota. The kids had fun walking along the river and trying to catch fish but we didn’t see any or catch any.
It didn’t matter to me if we caught fish or not. It was just great to be outside on a gorgeous fall day with 3 fun kids.
