Well Kept Secret

Northern Michigan is a well kept secret from the rest of the US. It is amazingly beautiful there and has all the great feelings of small town America. I am sure it has all the not so great feelings too but I wasn't there long enough to find out. Memorial Day weekend I went camping with some friends at Young State Park on Lake Charlevoix. We also went into the town of Charlevoix with is located just on the outlet of Lake Charlevoix to Lake Michigan. Here are some pictures below documenting my adventures.

Chalevoix's Best Sandwich. There was a really nice guy at this shop who helped us order and let us look as his groups sandwiches' to help us make our decision.

Original Murdick's Shop in Charlevoix and me holding the prized peanut butter chocolate fudge that managed to make it presence in almost ever meal thereafter.

Ferry on the way to church. At first we thought American Voice Jane (GPS) was trying to kill us in lake but luckily there was a ferry to rescue us.

We were an anomaly in our camp ground. Not just because we went to church but we were the only ones without a camper. One of the ward members gave everyone member a flower for memorial day.
