Doug & Maggie , you are absolutely correct about the Ship Wreck Museum at Whitefish Point. "Broom" and I spent the biggest part of a day going through it and the grounds there. This South Texas Lad had NO idea there are that many ships lying on the bottom of Lakes Superior & Michigan. Thanks for letting us know about.

Loved Sleeping Bear Dunes, the many lighthouses, wine country, Coast Guard Museum and Tall Ships in Traverse City area. Stayed at the State Park.

We loved Sleeping Bear Dunes, too,but the sinkhole that swallowed up the little boy a couple of weeks ago was frightening. We had that on our radar for a trip with the grandchildren.

Re the St. Croix national scenic river, it is quite lovely but set up for tents, only. Sites are accessible from the river, with signs as to what is available, etc.

Spent last night tucked into a shady area at a landing on the river.

Red, sent you a pm.

If I remember right it was a posted area that the kids shouldn't have been in. Sleeping Bear is a great place to camp, and look for stones.

One of my favorite places is Higgens Lake in Roscommon, Mi. National Geographic considers it the 7th most beautiful lake in the world. Visibility is 25 ft. Go out 100 yds and the water is up to your knees. Go another 100 yds and the water is up to your chest. Then it gets deep- 150 ft. Great for swimming.
Beautiful sunsets and two large state parks.

Wow really? I hadn't heard about that and I was just up in that area last weekend too. Can only imagine that not being a fun way to go out. What area were they in?

I don't recall, but you could Google it and find the article, I am sure. The child survived by being in an air pocket, but was in ICU for awhile...... Sink holes are popping up in many places. Yikes!

If you have not taken the ferry to Madeline Island, this is a lovely and quiet place. One could do a day trip and bike, or take your rig and stay in the less-improved city campground or more-improved state park.

We stayed at the city campground, good for those of us who are small, and absolutely loved their beautiful, pristine beach. Took Lily for a long run there early this morning.

Life is good.
