Our Collecting Abode

Our accommodations in the Keweenaw rank up with the best that I've stayed in over the years for mineral collecting. There is a group in Laurium, MI, that have purchased a number of old homes, many of them mansions or residences of senior mining executives or business people from the old days, and now, rent them out to people like us! So we stayed at this old home which was perfectly appointed. We could shop and store our food in a refrigerator, cook our breakfasts, make our lunches, eat in a nice dining room, keep our beer cold, etc. Each of us had our own bedroom. Mine was nicer than the one I have at home! One evening, we had a BBQ, invited friends and sat on the front porch 'till midnight. All said, wonderful accomodations.
