On The Road to MIchigan
Manistique lighthouse sits on a rock quay in Lake Michigan. The place is actually about 50-70 feet tall, and located at the end of a quarter mile quay. I am zoomed to 10 times in this picture.
Following a discussion of my constant use of the camera, Duchess insisted on a picture of "The Duke" at the wheel...
The Mackinaw Bridge.....Cost, $8 for a motorhome with car attached! Autos get across for $2.50.
We did not feel the oft-mentioned wind whipping our vehicle about. Seems the wind is usually high on the bridge, and I can believe it. There are no high railings to break the wind, and the center of the lanes is a grid of steel, allowing wind through. On our crossing it was calm.
Wednesday.....by jet boat to Mackinaw Island. Pictures tonight folks....We're probably going to splurge and take a horsedrawn carriage tour.
