Grand Marais is a city in Cook County, Minnesota, United States. Grand Marais is French for “Great Marsh,” referring to a marsh which in early fur-trading times was 20 acres or less in area, nearly at the level of Lake Superior, and situated at the head of the little bay and harbor that led to the settlement of the village there. Another small bay on the east, less protected from storms, is separated from the harbor by a slight projecting point and a short beach. In allusion to the two bays, the Ojibwe name for the area is Gichi-biitoobiig which means "great duplicate water" or "parallel body of water" or "double body of water" (like a bayou), a reference to the two bays which form the large harbor off Lake Superior.

The two RV Gypsies ate at the Harbor House Grille and the food was excellent. From their table on the patio, the two RV Gypsies had a wonderful view of the lighthouse. The food was so good that Lee returned to the Harbor House Grille for breakfast the next morning. He was glad he got there early, because by the time he finished breakfast, the restaurant was very busy with lots of patrons. (Karen was still sleeping). The two RV Gypsies highly recommend Harbor House Grille in Grand Marais, Minnesota.

The two RV Gypsies sat on a bench and enjoyed the view of Lake Superior, while calling their daughter Renee and wishing her a Happy Birthday. That is the only hard part of being RV Gypsies and travelling - missing the family and family functions.

The two RV Gypsies were not sure what the sign below means, but the tin man behind the sign caught their attention as they were driving to Temperance State Park.
