    We awoke in the morning to fog rising on the lake, and, since we were on the lakeside floor of our motel, we walked out and photographed the shoreline and grasses. Photographers: do rise and catch the morning light. My zoom lens enabled me to catch wide shots and pull in to isolate grasses growing in the shoreline water. Careful with exposure, bracketing may be a good idea. Or, think of the results as black and whites. My photos here may seem black and white, but they are unmanipulated color images.

    Well, it's not exactly a must-see but climbing Castle Rock is a quick, fun & cheap activity. It's only 50 cents a person to climb this 200' vantage point which affords a view of Lake Huron & Mackinac Island. The spires of Mackinac Bridge are also visible.
    At the bottom is a souvenir shop with the usual touristy kind of stuff.

    The other nice thing about it is that leashed dogs are allowed on the climb.

    B.C. (Best Choice) Pizza, is a great pizza place. What makes this place special is the people. Yes, the Pizza is excellent, and a great bargain, especially on Tuesday night, when larges and extra larges are 1/2 price and draft beer is $!.00. They made a mistake with our pizza, but caught it before bringing it to our table on the deck, and made up another pizza the right way and it was done in just 10 mintues. The wait staff was friendly and the pizza was great.

    Favorite Dish: pizza

    Most restaurants have basically the same S.A.D. menu in this town and there is really nothing on them for the vegetarian except for a salad or pasta. There is hope though. Che Peng, the chinese/thai restaurant in town is great and has many dishes for the vegetarian. If you are going to try a pastie, I reccoment Suzy's Pasties. This year it was voted the best Pasties in the state.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

    Favorite thing: The Lake Michigan beaches along US 2 to the east of St. Ignace are some of the prettiest in the United States, IMHO.

    Favorite thing: St. Ignace

    Pere Marquette established in 1671 the Mission of St. Igance. French troops soon after built Fort Buade. The state's second oldest white village guarded the Straits while serving as the most important French fur post in the northwest. By 1706, both the fort and mission were abandoned. Only in the 19th century did lumbering and fishing revive the town.

    "St. Ignace" is named after the founder of the Jesuit order, Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556). I believe that it's the only town in the United States to be named after him.
