Petoskey, MI

We traveled north on Thursday and got into northern Michigan. We stopped at a Walmart for the night in Gaylord, MI because there were no campgrounds nearby. It started pouring during the night and it poured all day Thursday so we made a slight detour to the west to Petoskey, MI which is right on Lake Michigan. It is know for its famous pebbles that are made into jewelry and all kinds of things. It poured all day yesterday and most of last night. It is quite windy (25 to 40 MPH winds) so we are not able to cross the Mackinac Bridge (third longest suspension bridge in the world) due to the wind.

We decided to take a drive through Petoskey today - it is full of quaint Victorian homes and beautiful flowers. The waves were crashing onto the stone shoreline due to the wind. Here are some photos:
