Daily Narrative    Acclimated to the new time zone, and having set the clock wrong, we were up at 7:30 and off to SuperOne Foods (Theresa believes a good ad line would be "It's Super!") to restock the pantry and fridge.  We returned to Bob and Mary Jo's and Ken changed the oil and checked the bus' timing.  We talked Bob into pulling his restored 1934 Ford Coupe out of his garage for us to snap a few photos.  This is a beautiful car, meticulously restored by Bob from the frame to the upholstery.  It has been on the cover of Hot Rod magazine and has won a pile of car show trophies.   Over a cup of coffee, Bob helped us plan our drive around Lake Superior and we were off.  We first drove through downtown Duluth's waterfront, and out to Minnesota Point where we found our first beach on the trip.  Duluth is a very pretty city, which reminded us of Portland, OR.  We drove back through Duluth and on into Wisconsin, following the scenic south shore of Lake Superior to Ashland.  We were pleasantly surprised at how pretty this part of the country is and Theresa would like to take all of the quaint old homes back to Anchorage with us.  The day's end came in Ironwood, Michigan, after the accidental discovery of a 52 foot fiberglass Hiawatha.  Figuring nothing could top that, we got some dinner and called it a day.
