First day in Munising Michigan

The 127 mile drive from Sault Sainte Marie to Munising was easy in spite of rainy weather. It was raining as we hooked up, and rained on and off as we drove. We got a bit wet as we set up, but the hard rain didn't start until we were safely tucked in. We tuned into some of the coverge of Hurricane Dorian, and identified with the scenes from the first bands of rain in Florida as we experienced a deluge of rain pouring over the Alfa. 

After a while it let up and stopped enough for us to consider going into town to get some information about the area.

We heard there was a small Farmer's Market down by the dock. We love the very fresh sweet corn we have had in the last few weeks, so made a point to stop there.

We were not disappointed. There weren't many vendors, but we did get some corn and fresh tomatoes.

We are staying at the Munising Tourist Park Campground, which is a city owned RV park right on the shore of Lake Superior. The beach is about 200 feet from our Alfa. 

The color of the water and size of the waves changed from hour to hour with the storm.

I've been watching for leaves that are turning red, but these are not the kind I love to see. Poison Ivy doesn't grow in the West where I have spent so much of my adult life, but I recall many an itchy encounter I had with it as a Wisconsin child! The beach grass was full of it.

We stopped at a scenic overlook not far from our RV park. We will be going on a boat trip either Wednesday or Thursday to see the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore near Munising. Hopefully we will get some better weather.

I think this place promises some great sunsets.  

I'll catch them if I can.


  1. Looks lovely except for the poison ivy. Love hearing about your travels.

  2. I can't believe we've covered much of the same territory in the last few weeks, including getting new Bigfoot jacks, yet missed each other. Well, I enjoy reading your posts, anyway. Sounds very familiar in places.

  3. Like mike said to guys are travelling so much of the same route even the bug foot jacks, keep on enjoying the area.

    1. lol sorry for the typo. my bandaged finger is playing games with me.

  4. So glad you are getting to see the Rocks... it was so very beautiful.
