Sep 25, 2014 - Leland Fishtown

This update covers the second part of our scenic Leelanau Peninsula drive. We were pretty tired after all the stops we had made, but we didn’t want to miss Leland and the Historic Fishtown District. The Leelanau Peninsula is loaded with awesome places to visit, I am sure we will be making many more visits. If you missed part one, please go back and read yesterday’s update. Leland takes you back in history...especially when you arrive in Fishtown. Rustic shanties that are now home to various shops have stood the test of time and give you a...

I think the population doubles during the day. We had some ice cream, did some shopping and came back to the house. Ate some dinner, played some games and we are all tired out. I think all the sun...

Michigan 2011

Sep 2, 2009 - South Manitou Island

A private company offers a boat trip to the "cubs" of Sleeping Bear NLS at a reasonable price for a day trip, so I took advantage of it on one of the most beautiful days in this area. Lake Michigan was calm, there was nary a cloud in the sky, and the temperature got up to about 75 degrees. A bonus was that they started their "one boat to both islands" schedule, so we stopped to pick up and drop off campers at North Manitou Island as well. While on the island, we ate our packed lunches at picnic tables, then went on a motor tour of part of...
