Day 15 - Made it to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

We decided not to stay at the Cabela's after all, moved over to the Cracker Barrel.  We enjoyed a nice breakfast, the Big Boy breakfast which we almost always get and split.

After breakfast we headed north stopping along the way.  Way had a nice visit to Traverse City, very nice downtown shopping area.

Walked around town for a couple of hours and then headed toward Sleeping Bear Dunes.  We got lucky and booked a night there this morning for a spot in the Platte River Campground!  The campground is very wooded and has plenty of space between the camping spots.  We are in spot 309, it's right next to a bathhouse which is handy.

Deb, Spike and I took the 1.5 Mike walk to the shore of Lake Michigan.  I saw the biggest black squirrel I have ever seen as  we were walking along the trail.

It was nice to have a camping spot for the night.
