He had a Hiawaian Christmas shirt. We laughed so hard we couldn't talk. He laughed with us because he is a Jolly old elf. He just wanted to welcome us to St. Ignace and hoped we had a wonder ful time. WHICH WE DID!
Now moving day.We have a game called the states game. You have a blank outline of the USA and then are given little states to fill in. Michigan is a funny looking state with this Upper Penisula. If I had been designing the USA This would be part of Wisconsin, but it ain't. We have Mechlenburg County down home that has such a shape.
Anyway We are heading West on Highway #2. It winds along Beautiful Lake Michigan for about 40+ miles.
Lake Michigan on my left.
Another tree lined shot of #117 and my mirror shows no or little traffic.
It is farm country also, and great driving.
We turned west on #28 another beautiful drive, farm land and Forest. We are headed for Lake Superior. WE have never seen this Great Lake.
Part of the drive we had a RAil Road track a good ways off to the South parallel with the road. And on the right a Beautiful slow-moving stream.
This is not a great shot, but we passed about six Bike packers. Folks who are tenting on bikes. Sorry this one is blurred. It is unique how they hang their belongings in side saddle bags.
We are getting close to Lake superior. We are going to meet the Great Lake at Munising, Michigan. It will be our first glimpse of it.
We finally see the Lake, after #28 turns NOrth. I love seeing something for the first time. I know it is just a big Body of Fresh water, I have just never seen this one. As I said in another entry, Superior is 21' higher than Lake Huron and Lake Michigan.
Close to our destination, we turn north on #41 into the city of Marquette, Michigan. It is nestled on the Southern shore of The Great lake Superior.
Driving into a town is always a surprise in a motor home. All towns look flat with no traffic on a map. Sometimes we are surprised. YES, in the town, SURPRISE, We drove the rig right thru town. No pictures in town, we were navigating the traffic and at least one driver who stopped dead on main street to discharge a passenger, I had to swing around him going up a hill, On the map it looked flat!!! We will come back and take some photo's down town they have one strange looking structure going out into the lake, we wonder what it is.
We have reached our destination. The Marquette Tourist Park. we are in town but in the woods. Checking in we pay and head for site #79.
Surprise, see how much different this new home is!!! We are ready to make this entry and try to find out what fish is good that comes out of that lake.
