Ralph and I left St. Ignace and traveled on Hwy 2, along the coast of Lake Michigan. We stopped in Manistique for lunch at a roadside park. They have a roadside park which was easy to maneuver the “house” into. They have a great walking trail and plaques along the trail to learn some history of the area. The city got it’s name from the Manistique River that flows in Lake Michigan. It’s a great place to sit and watch small boats come and go.
They have a nice harbor and lighthouse.
The Great Lakes had many shipwrecks in this area. Many sad stories of men going out to provide a living for their families and never came home. The name of this ship caught my eye because this is my maiden name. Didn’t realize I took a selfie at the same time.
