I got a big kick out of the GPS as we crossed the Mackinac Bridge – nothing but blue water, Lake Michigan to the west, Lake Huron to the East.
We ended our day at Loon’s Point RV Park and Campground (click here to read our review) in Cedarville, MI. Lots of blue water (Lake Huron), green grass, green trees, and quiet – and not a mosquito to be found. Is this paradise??

We are staying at Loon’s Point just long enough to clean Scoopy and do our laundry (we didn’t have a sewer hookup at our last stop). On Wednesday, we’ll head to Sault Ste Marie, the site of the huge locks that allow the giant Great Lakes freighters to move from Lake Huron to Lake Superior. If we’re lucky, we might be able to see the Tall Ships, traveling from Bay City, Michigan (on Lake Huron) to Duluth, Minnesota (on Lake Superior) during the Great Lakes United Tall Ships Challenge 2010 event.

We took a drive to the eastern end of the U.P. today, to the village of De Tour, on the De Tour Passage of the St. Mary’s River, the route to and from the locks at Sault Ste Marie. I took this photo looking towards the De Tour Passage, across to Canada.
The essence of summertime.
