King Copper

Today’s Zippy, skipping well ahead in the saga of Lazlo (the actor who plays Zippy) and, now, Connie (the actor who plays Zerbina), who are fleeing on the road:


They are in Copper Harbor MI, in the U.P. (the Upper Peninsula). Complicated geography.

First, the King Copper Motel:

The simple, cozy rooms feature waterfront or beachfront views, coffeemakers and TVs with cable channels.

Amenities include private beach access and an outdoor garden area with seating.

Address: 447 Brockway Ave, Copper Harbor, MI 49918

From Wikipedia:

Copper Harbor is a small unincorporated community in northeastern Keweenaw County in the U.S. state of Michigan. It is within Grant Township on the Keweenaw Peninsula which juts out from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan into Lake Superior.

Just where is that?, you ask. And where is it in relation to Duluth MN?

The big picture locating the U.P., bordered  by the Lower Peninsula, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Ontario:


And a more detailed map:


It’s a complicated part of the world. Maybe Lazlo and Connie will take some vacation time. On the other hand, this is black fly season in the area.
