Alice worked at the East Bay Hotel at Grand Marais, Minnesota September 2000. It is 110 mi north of Duluth. Cheryl describes it as a charming, tiny town. Alice worked the night desk at the hotel where Cheryl was staying. After the show, Cheryl went back to the hotel, and got talking to Alice. They spent several hours talking about all kinds of things. This song is the result.

Cheryl wrote the song, performed it once in Boston, and Alice got a call from somebody whose sister had heard the song. Cheryl had meant to send Alice e-mail telling her that she had written the song, but the sister beat her to it. The internet is amazing! That was a joke :^)

About ten years later, Cheryl was driving back to Grand Marais and wrote a second song. It must be an inspiring place.
