Day 7 - Michigan - Upper Peninsula

Stayed right before you cross the Mackinaw Bridge so that we could do it in the daylight. 


Ventured around as we made our way to Marquette. 

Locks in Sault Ste Marie:

Then there were these flowers...anyone know what they are?!

Then we went to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore:

We went to the 'beach' on Lake Superior and had lunch, but I forgot to take pictures. 

I got some pretty flowers given to me :)


Backyard fun:


More fun to come...
