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
