This morning we woke to more storms and more rain so I cleaned and did laundry. There is a double load washer and dryer in the ladies room that does a great job. By late afternoon, the rain and wind stopped and the temperature dropped dramatically.
So we decided to go to the Elks for their fish fry - YUM! We had a great time talking to the locals. I just love going to the Elks or Moose or Legion or VFW when we visit small towns.

Tomorrow’s weather is supposed to be BEAUTIFUL so we are hoping to take the Soo Locks Tour Boat.
Stay tuned and enjoy today!
