We stayed at an amazing bed and breakfast in Bayfield: the Pinehurst Inn. The owner Steve was a great storyteller and over delicious breakfasts cooked with seasonal ingredients delighted me with all kinds of Lake Superior information. The room was fantastic, with a large tub, 3-sided fireplace and filled with good energy and aromas from the spa two floors below.
I started reading, “The Devil in the White City” and “Lake Superior Magazine” by the fire. Because of the thinness of ice on Lake Superior in January, hiking to the ice caves along the lakeshore was impossible. Instead I picked up “A Voice Within” by photographer Craig Blacklock, and took the trip in my imagination.
