We rode back to Munising and started looking for the two lighthouses that were nearby.
I'd asked the staff at the motel about them, but they had no idea.
I've noticed lately that wherever I am in the country, the locals I talk to never know where a point of interest is.
These two lights were a few miles down the road - and this local who has lived there her entire life had no idea.
Just an observation, but I do sometimes joke or tease them about it.
We passed the lighthouses up inadvertently, and had to turn around at a little roadside park near Christmas, Michigan right on the lake.
Then I found Grand Island Harbor Range Light down a two track in the woods on the other side of the road from the Lake.
It is alongside Highway 28 just east of Christmas.
This was something different, checking out a lighthouse tucked back in the woods !
It was not an easy task getting the ST turned around back there.
Then back into town where the Munising Range Light sat hidden. It was small and literally sat right within the houses, and next to a business, which is why we rode right by it initially.
After the Lighthouses, it was time for a dinner of fish and chips and off to bed.
We were up bright and early. Actually we slept in - compared to usual. Our breakfast and coffee destination for the morning didn't open until around 8:30 so we took our time.
Today was going to be a busy day.
We woke in Munising on Lake Superior; after breakfast we were headed for Manistique on Lake Michigan, and then down across the Mackinaw bridge and along the Lake Huron shore, before heading home for the night - and work the next day.
First stop only a mile down the road at the FALLING ROCK cafe and bookstore.
I really like this place.
It has that coffee shop/book store ambiance that I love.
They had this interesting 100 year old coffee machine on display.
