    We always enjoy stopping at the locks and getting up close to the big ships.

    The last trip we checked out the small locks on the Canada side and also walked out to the Saint Mary's River rapids.

    I plan to ride and camp around the lakes and was wondering what is Canada's policy on concealed carry.

    My wife and I take what are called in Japanese, 日帰り旅行 (Higaeri Ryouko) which means literally “returning on the same day vacations” every weekend we can during riding season. This year, we did a day to Huron, Erie and Michigan. Some pictures from Huron. 07C91025-FBCE-4C92-9137-934E0F83F751.jpeg EBD04555-ADC3-4F2B-AB36-2869D16257F3.jpeg A071D101-C51E-49CE-9F25-48C6385E8C10.jpeg C562ACFF-EF4F-4891-A7BE-53EEFC9FE1A5.jpeg A698F880-B085-4B95-BDDC-41E5DED539B9.jpeg

    Erie: Lunch in Port Clinton at the “Jolly Rodger.” They have great Lake Erie perch and Walleye sandwiches. Erie photos taken at the Marblehead Lighthouse.

    Michigan: rode from the junction of I-275 and US12, the old “Chicago Highway” between The Motor and the Windy Cities before I-94 was built, following 12 the whole way. Stopped for lunch in Jonesville at Rosalie’s Roadhouse—Coconut cream pie was fab. Pic of Lake Michigan is from the beach at New Buffalo. We met a young guy there who had ridden 200 miles up from Indiana on a Wee Strom—thought it was good to see a 20 something guy out touring and enjoying the day.
