I woke up early and departed my SE MN home at about 7:30am, for the long drive to Geraldton Ontario. I made a brief lunch stop in Grand Marais at the Gunflint Tavern, and gassed up before crossing the border. I arrived at the Crown Anchor motel in Geraldton at about 7:00pm (eastern) and checked into my room. It was cold and rainy, and I noted the large puddles in the motel’s parking lot. The clerk mentioned that they had been getting a lot of rain lately, so I began to wonder a bit about water levels on the Drowning.
