The boat crossing to the Michigan side from Isle Royale was big, heated, and as comfortable as a TGV train in Europe. We had a window table with comfortably padded seats and we spent the 3 and ½ hours alternating between reading, playing cribbage, and looking out the window.

We got in at 6:15 pm and dropped off our bikes and stuff at the closeby water-side motel and headed off to get sustenance. We got some salads and a couple of beers before walking a couple of more to the tiny Brickside Brewery where we had a couple of more delicious pints of handcrafted beer.

CopperHarbor is a pretty little village with only 80 year around residents. The beautiful harbor is a relatively large crescent shape inlet that is partially made up of small islets. The temperature has finally strayed out of the butt-numbing cold range and should trend into more summer friendly digits as we move further away from Lake Superior. Tomorrow we will ride fast and wild down the Keweenaw Peninsula where we will meet up with my old high school buddy, Garwood in Houghton.
