Seul Choix Point Lighthouse......Read on....

August 26, Wednesday, We got going by 9 am today..Weather is sunny about 70* and a great day for travel. Down the road we saw a billboard for a Historic Light House..Seul Choix Point Lighthouse. We turned down the side road for 8 miles back to the waterfront. We took the $3.00 tour and saw the residence fo lighthouse keepers and walked up 96 steps to the light. While in the tower I talked to some other tourists there. In talking they told us how to get to Mackinac Bridge area. We talked about going to the Island also. They said them were not going there but had tickets for the Ferry crossing. WOW...They gave us 2 round trip tickets for the ferry, value of $50.00 how's that for friendly people in Michigan. We parted and kept saying Thank-You...and then waved good-bye to them as they drove off... What Nice People!!!

We left and drove another 60 miles and arrived in St. Ignace at Straits State Park. We got a space near the waterfront area in the second row, there are sites up on the hill away from the lake too. We paid for 4 nights to stay and see the area. We needed groceries so off to town we go to restock. Today was about 150 miles and we are now enjoying a campfire beside the airstream. I did get some night shots of the Mackinac Bridge from the shore line. We did not cross the bridge yet as we are on the north side for now. God Bless..AirstreamHobo & Carol
