Cool Breezes, Some Rain, and The Big Eraser Again

St. Ignace, MI.

69 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Mostly cloudy with a chance of a thunderstorm and a chance of rain. High of 81F. Winds less than 5 mph. Chance of rain 50%.

Not much to report. We've all be just kickin' back the last few days. Oh, there was a short trip to the grocery store for a few items, but other than that, both Jim and Linda have been spending quite a bit of time outside, under the nice shade trees that we have here, or under the awning, (depending on the time of day), enjoying the nice cool breeze blowing in off of the lake.

I understand that it's been quite hot many places, but right here on the north shore of the lake, it's been cool enough that Jim and Linda haven't had to run the A/C since we've been here!!

Yesterday evening, just after Jim cooked a couple of brats on the grill, a line of storms came through the area.

There was some lightning, some rain and a little wind, but nothing severe. Then in the middle of the night, it rained some more for awhile and then this morning we had a pretty heavy shower go through the area.

Originally, the plan was to head on down the road today, but again, Jim got out that big eraser and made some changes. So,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  , yesterday, he went up to the office and paid for 2 more nights here. ;- )  That means we'll be here until Saturday and then head farther West to a CG over near Manistique, MI where we have reservations at yet another park that is also right on Lake Michigan.

Today, Jim and Linda are planning on going out to eat. They have been told about 2 very different restaurants that are supposed to be very good, so they'll have to decide which one they want to patronize. :-)
One is a small Cafe' that is supposed to have excellent food and the other is a steak and seafood restaurant right on the lake, that is also supposed to have very good food.  

Hmmmm!!!! decisions, decisions!!!!

Did you know that Michigan is the only place in the world with a floating post office? The J.W. Westcott II is the only boat in the world that delivers mail to ships while they are still underway. They have been operating for 125 years.
