Lake Superior Weekend

My weekend was spent at my Happy Place - Lake Superior. Ever since I was a very little girl, I have been traveling to Lake Superior for weekends or week long vacations. Herbster, Wisconsin holds a place in my heart that many other places can't fill. Once I smell & see the lake, I feel like I am in a different world! Many summer days, I wish I lived closer to the lake. Three hours in the car gets to be long for the kids, so we only get to the lake 2-3 times during the summer. 

We arrived late Thursday evening & set up our tent in the dark. The kids stayed in the car, as the bugs were out in full force! Friday morning, we took a walk to the local cafe for a delicious breakfast. We usually stop at this cafe every time we are town, visiting friends of the family that live in the area. 

We were lucky to have this view on the way to the cafe! 

Lake Superior was warmer than usual this trip. It doesn't matter how cold the water is, we always play on the beach & splash in the water. The kids enjoy playing in the sand, building sandcastles, finding rocks & drift wood. My favorite part is smelling the fresh lake air! 

Friday afternoon, we took a little drive further up the Wisconsin South Shore. We stopped at an old marina called Bark Point that I used to go fishing at with my dad when I was a little girl. 

Friday evening was beautiful. Warm air, sunny skies, and a light breeze was perfect to walk the beach and watch the sunset.

Saturday was a perfect day for more exploring! The kids found sticks to play with early that morning & used them the rest of the day to play!

Hiking, exploring & games at our camp site were a fun part of our day!

I posted this photo on Instagram on Saturday afternoon. I have been walking this path in Cornucopia, Wisconsin to the beach since I was a very little girl and I am still just as excited to see the lake beyond this path! The Wisconsin South Shore has beautiful sandy beaches with nice swimming areas. This area is a secret treasure that I just love to spend time in. 

My goofy boy couldn't wait to be buried in the sand! 

My husband & daughter enjoyed floating in the water!

Ended our last day of camping playing in the sand on the beach. It's always sad to leave. 

So thankful I was able to spend the weekend at my Happy Place with my family. Lake Superior has always been a home away from home for me. I am looking forward to coming back in a few weeks for a last summer hurrah!
