Apostle Islands National Lakeshore-Bayfield, WI

On the third day of our vacation we woke up, packed up all our camping gear and were on the road by 8 a.m. to our next destination, the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Bayfield, WI.

As much as we love the outdoors and hiking, it was time for a little sight seeing and relaxation. We actually spent two days in this area. The first day we did lots of walking, some shopping, took tons of pictures and picked up our tickets we had ordered for a tour of the Apostle Islands sea caves the next day.

By mid afternoon we headed back to Ashland, WI which was where we had a hotel booked for the next two nights. We checked in, looked over the grounds, and stopped at a local grocery store for some picnic items we needed for the next day.

After all that, we took advantage of blow up inner tubes offered by the hotel and my husband and I floated out into Lake Superior and drifted around for about two hours. It was so relaxing and refreshing.

We eventually figured it was time to head back to our room and change to venture out for some dinner. We found ourselves back in Bayfield, WI at a restaurant that was recommended to us while shopping that morning. Maggie’s is just a little building with flamigos everywhere. Even the building itself is painted bright pink.

It was a fun place, packed from wall to wall, with great service. They have a very unique menu with many different items you typically would not find anywhere else. I enjoyed one of their specialty pizzas.

After another big day, it was back to our hotel for a good nights sleep.

Tomorrow I will share the grand tour of the sea caves with you and tell you about the terrific family friendly hotel we stayed in.

More to come…

      • I don;t know if you are familiar with Picmonkey, but they make it really easy to combine collages. That way you don’t have to choose! I do most of my collages in recipes or step-by-step tutorials so people don;t have to scroll forever, but also because it only takes up the space of one photo. picmonkey.com is also free!
