We got back from vacation late Tuesday afternoon and had a great time. We took a bus tour around Lake Michigan and it was absolutely beautiful. We have never taken a vacation like this so it was something totally new to us and we have never been up North either.
This is our bus driver and the bus we went on. There was a total of 57 people on the bus. This was the most patient man I have ever met. He was so gentle with everyone. We had several older individuals on the trip and he was really good with them.
The scenery was great and the leaves were beginning to change. It was overcast the whole time and very cool. Mackinac Island was so interesting. Any place that doesn't have cars is very interesting. Horse drawn carriages and bicycles or walking are the only modes of transportation. Here are some pictures of places we visited.
This out building is at Sturgeon Bay, WI. This area is called a miniature Cape Cod. It is so pretty there and everything looks like it should be in the Northeast.
We had lunch at this restaurant. It is designed as an old English Inn. The food was very good.
We had a fish boil one evening in Wisconsin. It was with white fish that was caught that same day. It was so good. First the boil the fish, then douse the fire with kersosene and then the fire goes out. In with the fish are potatoes and onions and it is served with rye bread, coleslaw and cherry pie.
This is after the kerosene is put on the fire. The smoke then rises.
