So we are heading for Michigan for a while to see what the lower part is like. Many we know have raved about it so we are going for a sampler. We have been to the Upper Peninsula many times now and this trip will be no different. Through the UP on the way over and back.
That means once each way across the Mighty Mac, the Mackinac Bridge. More than 25,000 feet long and 155 feet above the water, it ranks as the 5th longest suspension bridge in the world. For Susan’s sake we will drive in the lane furthest from the edge.
We will spend some time in St Ignace near Mackinaw Island, a few days near East Jordan on Lake Charlevoix, then a week or so down near South Haven at Van Buren State Park on Lake Michigan during the Blueberry Festival and then up to Orchard Beach State Park. Over the bridge to Sault St Marie for a ship watching time, Munising for some beach time and Ontonagon near the Porcupine Mountains for some quiet time on the South Shore of Lake Superior.
All present and correct.
Traffic control gives the clear to launch and we are off.

Have a great time!
Don’t forget the pasties in Munesing! Right along the lake. Frank Green
OK Frank, last time over here we brought a half dozen home made pasties using Gerry’s recipie (except for the lard in the pastry and the suet in the mix). And no carrots. We baked them up and along with our friends compared them to Munising’s best store bought pasties. Mom’s pasties won hands down.
Have a wonderful trip. I don’t know who took the photo framing The bridge with the flowers, it’s great. We’re headed for the two story on Monday. You’ve never seen a house so out of square. We’re talking many inches in each room. The good news is that all the dirty work is done with us doing the drywall.

Thanks Jim, I did not take the bridge picture, it is one of the official picures. If we are not on an inside lane Susan will Be quite nervous.
Have a safe trip and good weather too! Frank Green
Sounds like an other beautiful trip. Anxious to see pictures and read your commentary along the way. Safe travels.
Love Pat and Joe
