Beautiful Travel Day from Traverse City to St Ignace Michigan

 

The aqua hot repair went smoothly at

Just Trucks just out of Traverse City MI, . . .

they told Dave on the phone

that they cater to folks who are on the road. . .

and sure enough, they pulled us right in when we

arrived about 1P. . .got right on the repair. . .

had the parts in stock, and had us ready and rolling by 5P. . .


We decided to spend the night at an RV park

right around the corner from their shop. . .

after five hours on the road to get there,

and four hours waiting around. . .we were beat.


With the Aqua Hot repair we had done at the Escapade,

(I’ll write more about it later) and this repair to the pump,

we feel we basically have a new water heater. . .

works for us. . .

Scenic Drive along the Lake Michigan Shoreline

this morning, with only a two hour trip to St Ignace (pronounced Ig-nus)

we  decided to take the scenic route

along the Lake Michigan Shoreline. . .what a lovely drive. . .

 

Apple Orchards

apple orchards. . .

pretty Michigan Farms

lovely farms. . .

pretty Michigan Harbor

beautiful harbors. . .

 

panaramic view of our purty little lunch spot on Lake Michigan- Big Rock Point

and a wonderful road side park to stop and have

a pimiento cheese sandwich and enjoy the view. . .

it just happened to be a Historical Indian Gathering Grounds

called Big Rock Point. . .it’s a rather interesting story

if you care to take the time to read it.

Mackinac Bridge

next. . .the famed Mackinac Bridge which spans the

channel between Lake Huron and Lake Michigan,

and which allows access to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. . .

or the UP (YEW PEA). . .as it is called. . .

 

Lovely, lovely, lovely day. . .

see you tomorrow in Mackinac Island. . .

‘til then,

Janice and Dave
