We were starting to get hungry by this point, and we had already decided the night before where to get breakfast: World's Best Donuts! We looked at the clock and saw that it was 7 am, meaning the donut shop had just opened and would have piping hot, fresh donuts. Without taking time to shower, we jumped in the car and headed into Grand Marais.

After sharing three very satisfying donuts and scoring some sweet souvenirs, we explored what little of Grand Marais was open and undiscovered. There are a few neat antique shops in Grand Marais, and we amused ourselves by looking through all the cool stuff the shops had and ended up talking ourselves out of buying a lot of stuff we have no room for at the moment.

It was nearing 8 pm and getting dark but we still weren't hungry so we ordered dinner from My Sister's Place to go and took it back to our room for later. that turned out to be a good idea, because the storm hit less than 10 minutes after we returned to the lodge. So we headed downstairs to the lobby area to play trivial pursuit and watch the storm over the lake before calling it a night.
