Day 17 - Still in Petoskey

We spent the night at the Odawa Casino in Petoskey.  They have a nice section for RVs, room for about 20 RVs.

We went back to Charlevoix, MI to check out an art show in town.  After that we drove around and checked out the mushroom houses in town.  They are very unique and storybook looking.

 After driving back to Petoskey we visited the casino again and made back the little money we lost last night.

Day 16 - Made it to Petoskey

We left Platte River Campground and did some sightseeing in the area.

First stop was the little village of Empire, they were some nice art stores there.  The Masonic Temple had an interesting light on it.

From there to the Coast Guard Station Sleeping Bear Point Station.  The boat house had a couple of nice old surf board, one an original and one a reproduction.  There was some interesting items there including a Lyle line throwing cannon.

From there we stopped at the Climbing Dune, there was a lot of people there enjoying the day climbing the dune.

Leaving the Climbing Dune we headed to the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive.  The scenic overlooks had some great views.  One of the overlooks had a place where people would go down the dune towards the lake.  It is not something the parks wants people to do, it's dangerous, but people love danger.

On the road still heading north we stopped for the night in Petoskey.
