Not that kind, although we did pass two casinos….
We drove up to Brimley, a very small settlement just west of the Soo. Its claim to fame are the two Indian casinos on the outskirts of town.
We passed this graveyard.
The wooden boxes on the ground are spirit houses above grave sites. Besides protecting the grave, they held tools and resources that the dead would need to sustain them on their trip to the land of the spirits.
Around the back, the land drops quite a bit down to the water level. The trees are thick and rich.
Lighthouses needed constant attention, so the full-time keeper of the light usually lived with his family in a home often attached to the lighthouse tower. This one has been out of service for some time, but is very well maintained. I couldn’t get this one tourist to move along and out of the photo….she kept waving to me!
On this day’s trip, we passed many fields with their hay bales all neatly placed near barns. But we passed a number of very large fields where the bales were still sitting in the field with new grass growing up around them, like this one.
