We’ve moved into the “mitten” of Michigan and spent the last few days getting settled. We found that the Northwest Michigan Fairgrounds Campground in Traverse City gave us the best bang for our buck. This place is nothing special but it does give us 50 amp and a water hook-up for a great weekly rate. Because there is so much to see and do in this area, it works great for us. We’re not here much anyhow! :)
We stopped by Mackinaw City one day. This is the city on the south end of the Mackinac Bridge.
After spending an afternoon there, we were glad we had decided to stay on the north end of the bridge, St. Ignace. Our end was much less touristy :)
Another day was spent in Petoskey, a beautiful little community on the shore of Lake Michigan just north of Traverse City.
And today, we toured the Old Mission Peninsula.
We visited the Old Mission (replica) and arrived at the same time as the Red Hat Ladies! :)
Further north was the Old Mission Lighthouse and the Hesler Log House.
It was a beautiful drive complete with a stop at the Mission General Store!
We completed our day at Hawthorne Vineyards where we sampled a few of their wines and even took a couple bottles home! Surprise! :)
Tomorrow, we plan to kayak the Platte River. Stay tuned :)
Thanks for stopping by.
