Well blogpals, I am back from my second grand Michigan journey of this summer. and slightly rested. Day 1, I visited a classic favorite; The Mighty Mac [Mackinaw Bridge]. and went over it to the Upper Peninsula of course!
My favorite place so far is to visit St. Ignace, which is just past the bridge. You can drive all along the lake & it's just beautiful! There are a ton of fun little gift shops & kitschy motels, but many, sadly, have been shut down.
Castle Rock is always on the top of my list. It is a sea stack or "sea chimney" made of limestone which was also said to be used as a lookout point; "Ojibway's Lookout". I've been visiting ever since I was little. I didn't climb it this time! Or else I'd have loads of pictures to share! This is also one of the many sites of a giant Paul Bunyan & Babe. Too bad it's all fenced in now!
Castle Rock also has a sweet gift shop full of Paul Bunyan gear. I am always tempted to buy storybooks. Here's a page I snapped real quick-like:
More to come-
