August 31,Monday, We rise and go over to the Boat Museum at Glen Haven, a little village of long ago. The waterfront is wonderful to walk along the shore, there is more stones/rocks than sand along here. We did see the old Coast Guard Station with old boats on display and talked to the volunteer guide host, she was from Florida doing a work camper job here 16 hours a week for free camp site, her husband demo'd at the Blacksmith shop too. They Love IT!!! We did talked to alot of people all summer that have traveled north to volunteer a few days a week and then see the area the other days with free camping all summer. What a retirement life! These people loved to mingle with tourists and share their knowledge. Check-out at noon, we head down the road, to Ludington State Park. These is a lake shore state park, over 300 sites. This is the Most Popular destination for the Michigan Tourists, the place is packed with families enjoying their vacations, not many vacant sites left. You can park along the road way to the park at the Lake Michigan with sand dunes on both sides and go swimming in the lake.
