Camping on Madeline Island - one of the Apostle Islands of Lake Superior. The weather was perfect, leaf season was at its peak. The cold weather scared almost everyone else away from the campground so we got to enjoy a few of the sites around us in peace. It was just a quick walk from our site down to the beach and boardwalk where you could rent canoes and kayaks on the honor system. On the 4.5 hour drive from Minneapolis to Madeline we stopped at White Winter Winery - the makers of fine mead! What is mead? I still don’t really know but it was like a sweet wine that the likes of Beowolf and Tyrion Lannister used to drink. We enjoyed around the campfire in 32 degree weather.
