Again Lake Michigan was like glass for our 4 hour run to Leland. We arrived before noon and walked to The Cove Restaurant in “Fish Town” for lunch. “Fish Town” is a National Landmark District. It is home to an authentic Great Lakes fishing tug. Ancient ice and fish shanties now house an operating fish house and specialty shops. The 2 of us have been here several times, and it is one of our favorite stops on Lake Michigan. The looper train had dinner at the Bluebird Restaurant which is located in a beautiful setting with gardens overlooking the small Leland River that feeds into Lake Michigan.
On Wednesday we checked the weather and decided to pass on the predicted 2 to 4 foot waves. We did some laundry, ate breakfast with Jeff and Linda at the Early Bird restaurant, and bought some groceries. The 2 of us enjoyed shrimp cocktail and brie with mushrooms for appetizers before our meatloaf dinner on Dream Catcher.
