June 1, 2009 De Pere, WI to Gladstone, MI

This was a three hour jaunt through the woods and fields of Northern Wisconsin into the wooded hills of Michigan's Upper Penninsula. As soon as we got through Green Bay, the traffic thinned and the drive became very comfortable. We entered Michigan at Menomine. The last time we were in Menomine, we were working and went to bed after watching a beautiful sunset and awoke to about six inches of snow and slush. Not this time. It was beautiful! When we got to our campground we were pleasantly surprised. Gladstone Bay Campground is a city owned park. It is great! We have full hookups and cable on a nicely grassed site with fresh crushed rock pads. Our lot is very large and across the way from a wetland that has a boardwalk through the wetlands and alongside the shoreline of Little Bay de Noc. The bay is an inlet from the northern portion of Lake Michigan. We will spend two nights here and then maybe go to St. Ignace, MI. We found another great home cookin' restaurant in Gladstone, Debby's. We each had the chicken pot pie and it was delicious. It had a fresh, flakey home baked very light pastry on top and was very filling. We had no room for the home baked pies tonight. (that may be a good thing, huh?)
