I have been to Grand Marais many times in June & July. You failed to mention the many large sail boats that stop for overnights to rest & gather supplies in Grand Marais in the Harbor. It is not only a utilitarian exercise but a beautiful site to behold at both sunset & sunrise. The people I meet coming & going are from all over the world & are friendly & more then happy to talk about where they have been & where they are headed in their adventures. this is one aspect of Grand Marais that could have been uncovered in your story had you left the harbor & gone into any shop in town & talked to a local towns person. Afterall, I'm from Minneapolis & I know this story about Grand Marais. Part of the great Midwest.

Hi Diane-Thanks for stopping by!
I'm well aware of the sail boats and over night visitors who frequent the harbor at Grand Marais in the warmer and busier days of the summer. I'm sure many others are familiar with this story as well. But the story that interested me here was the history and the story about the quieter side of the harbor that we found during this visit on a cold and dreary day. It's a quiet side you don't always see in the high summer season, and I wanted to share that with people.
