From Detroit to the Upper Peninsula, St. Ignace,MI

Well we said good bye to Johnny and his daughter Candace.
Had to take a pic of this sign, Frankenmuth. The last time we were there was with Sonny and Colette. The time before was with Elmer and Lennie. A Bavarian village known for Bonner's Christmas Store.

The land turned Farming after we left the Detroit area. Beautiful HUGE corn fields adn some soy fields.


Beautiful arming country.

A harvested field.
A farm just 'hayed'.


Sherry just caught this old barn thru the screen door.


My chaffeur, she does good! (at a lot of things)


We passed a sign saying easy off and easy on, Washed Black cherries. I swunf off the highway then told Sherry it didn't say BIG rigs easy off and on. But it was. They are delicious.



Looking over into Lake Huron one of the Great Lakes.




Approaching the famous Mackinac Bridge. (they were working on it, our Stimulus money at work).

This is the second stantchion on the Mackinac Bridge. It seems to have Lake Heron on the East side and lake Michigan on the west.
Just over the bridge, on the Lake Heron side is a pretty shore line.
WE and the other folk here have arrived at the toll booth $12.50 (for our rig) on the other side is our home for awhile.
We checked in at the TIKI RV office here in St. Ignace
So this is home for a few days. We want to see what the Upper Peninsula is all about.
Thanks for riding with us. The land turns farm land as you saw, but near the upper peninsula it gets hilly. We saw a few cows but Ginger was not among them. Oh I forgot she is back in Texas, safe and sound, I can quit looking for her and her partner.
Hey we are in a place we have never been before. We had left overs for supper. Pintos, salmon patties slaw and squash.
We will take a couple days and try to see that place Dar suggested on up near Superior I think. I have to check with the comments from yesterday.

PS:
Sherry’s advice to young ladies:
Go for the younger man. You might as well, they never mature anyway.
Men are all the same - they just have different faces, so we can tell them apart.

Sorry about the spelling, I am not going back to correct it. Just guess (Oh you already did!)

What a beautiful place to stay awhile. I loved seeing all the sights along the way. I traveled from home to my campsite today and am tucked away in my beloved woods. The sun has just set and all is quiet here. Your supper sounds great. I love leftovers. Hope you both enjoy the night and get some good rest.

Sherry looks like she knows exactly what she is doing. Bet she could drive a really big rig or anything else she put her mind to.

I've never been to the upper peninsula. I love being anywhere there is lots of water! I did love all the truck gardens south and west of Lansing last time I was there.

Been following you, Sounds like a great "Adventure" you are on, If you don't know an area of a city you are visiting and its getting dark, "DON'T GO THERE"!
enjoy yourselves!
