Our last stop of the day was Grand Marais, Minnesota. After grabbing a bite to eat we headed out to the harbor. We were hoping for a spectacular sunset but it didn’t happen. Never-the-less the weather was warm and it was a calm evening.

We took some photos of the breakwater. Lake Superior is high right now so areas that were exposed a few years ago are not under water.

Walking out onto the natural rock breakwater we noticed some names carved in the stone. This one was from 1899.

The late evening light brought out lichen colors on the rocks.

This was the sunset looking toward the Sawtooth Mountains.

As we were walking back to the car we noticed this duck sitting right beside the path. It wasn’t about to move.
