Upper Peninsula Tour-Day 1

My friend, Bonnie, and I left today for our second annual trip across the Upper Peninsula. Bonnie is combining this with a trip for her work where she calls on college bookstores. There is so much to do in the UP that although we are going to the same colleges, we are seeing different sights from last year. We left Caledonia around 7 am but made our first stop at Essential Bean, the best spot in Caledonia or West Michigan for coffee. Our next stop was Darrows Restaurant in Mackinaw City for whitefish sandwiches. The coffee shop in the picture above is in Bay Mills where I waited while Bonnie called on clients but it wasn't long before we were back on the road.

There were a couple of new scenic outlooks over Lake Superior and the beauty is breathtaking. The water was warm and we saw lots of kids in swimming.



We then went to Whitefish Point and the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum. There was a 1,000 foot frieghter out front which we haven't been able to identify yet. The weather was actually quite warm for there.
Our next stop was Taquamenon Falls where we visited both the upper and lower falls. Such a beautiful spot.


We finished our day with a stop at Pickleman's Pantry near Newberry for dinner. Our motel in Munising overlooks Lake Superior and the Pictured Rocks. The overnight temperature is going to be in the 40's so I think we will have to close our slider before long. The air is so clear and humidity-free, that we are really loving it here.

This is the view from our room.
