Petosky, Michigan

Linda notes that we are now entering my part of trip.  I planned the lower Michigan tour.  As she says, now it's just museums, markers, cemeteries and libraries - old people's stuff.

We were headed to Petosky, next, to enter Hemingway country.  Young Ernest learned many of his outdoor skills during his family's summers spent in this area.  We called ahead and got the last room available at Stafford's Bay View Inn just north of Petosky.  With a 125 year history in the area, this old-fashioned (no TVs in the rooms) inn offers a dining room with a great bay view, of course.  Breakfast came with a rainbow dropping into the lake.  Your experience may vary.  For example, you might see a rainbow and have your camera with you!

The next morning, we headed south making a stop at Hemingway's Walloon Lake marker.  You won't just accidentally stumble onto the marker.  You'll need to use something like michmarkers.com to find it.
