We love the UP! Honorary Yoopers!!

We only have four more days in the UP! I love it up here! Surrounded by Great Lakes & Rivers & more Lakes! The weather has been awesome!! Cool with breezes, occasional thunderstorms that come & go quickly! We’ve eaten a lot of fish! Walleye, Perch, hamburgers…oh 🤣we’ve had all kinds of good food up here! Tried a Pastie (Pass Tee) for the first time & have had them a few more times! Had a Vernors, only in Michigan ginger soda! We’ve embraced being Yoopers!! The Michiganders have been so welcoming!! We went for a walk on the boardwalk & saw the lighthouse in town (Manistique) again today. About every 10th vehicle on Hwy 2 is an RV! If you ever have the chance to visit the UP you won’t be disappointed! Mackinac Island is like a step back in time & so enchanting, Soo Locks & Sault (Soo) Ste Marie is just a darling town & dates back to the 1600’s! That’s old for America! 🇺🇸 In our two years of full timing & just starting our third year, we have seen so much of this beautiful Country!! And excited that there is so much more to see! Have a blessed week! We had a sundae to finish our day!😳😎

Manistique Michigan & Kitch iti Kipi “Big Springs”

We are loving the UP! Manistique, Michigan is such a cute town & the Boardwalk along Lake Michigan is fun & just a beautiful area!! We ate at a daring place in town called Cedar St Cafe!! I’m sure we will go there again while we are here! It was yummy! Today we went to Kitch iti Kipi “Big Springs” located within the Palms Book State Park! The water was so clear & huge brown & Lake trouts in it. It was fun to take a raft on a pulley system across the Springs & watch the springs bubble up from below!! Just a gorgeous area!! We are blessed to live in such a beautiful Country!😎🇺🇸  

St Ignace, Michigan & Pasties!

We had such a great time in St Ignace, Michigan!! We were so excited to try a Pasties (Pass-Tees) for the first time! They were yummy! It’s like a baked chicken or beef pot pie but shaped like a turnover!! Also tried the Michigan fav, Vernors soda! It too was yummy. It’s a ginger soda kind of like a mild ginger ale! After I drank it & loved it, I looked at the sugar content….38 grams of sugar in one drink!! Yikes! I think that’s my first & last Vernors but I sure enjoyed it! St Ignace is such a darling town. It’s right along Lake Huron!! Just beautiful!! The UP ( Upper Peninsula) of Michigan has been awesome! Great weather, good food & the people are warm & friendly! Hope we can make it back here someday!!😎🇺🇸

Mackinac Island!

Another fun day today!! Took the Shepler’s Ferry to Mackinac Island. What a darling place! I’m glad we went earlier in the day because by the time we left it was so crowded! We did the Carriage ride that takes you all over. And there are horses to rent, personal carriages & bikes! People also brought their own bikes on the ferry. No extra charge! You can also bring your dog with you. Very pet friendly. So many places to stay all night if you’d like! Several Hotels & B & B’s! Lots of places to eat also! They are famous for their fudge so we got ours to bring back to the 5er! It was a beautiful day on the Island but it does get busy! We got there at 9:30 but when we go again it will be way earlier! We really loved everything about Mackinac Island! Put it on your bucket list!! 😎🇺🇸

Sault (SOO) Ste Marie Michigan & Canada The Soo Locks Boat Tour!!

Wonderful adventure that starts on Lake Huron & goes through the Locks of St Mary’s River to Lake Superior! We were able to see a freighter go through & that was exciting!! It’s just a beautiful area so we decided after the tour to go on over the International Bridge & go into Sault Ste Marie Ontario Canada. We had lunch at a delicious Thai place! It was a fun day!! Stay tuned!!🇺🇸😎🇨🇦😍
