Presque Isle, Michigan

Northeast Kingdom of Michigan, Presque Isle Point.

We believe we found one of the most beautiful places on earth. And the form of the world reflected this. It was palpable the moment we were greeted at the dock by a group of dockhands and when we met the sailor on a neighboring boat, literally, love was all around us.

There was abundant peace in Presque Isle. From the Harbor to the back roads and even during a dramatic storm, it was an amazing place. We lingered there for three days! It was soul food. It was our neighbor offering us his truck to drive 60 miles (each way) to Cheboygan to pick up David’s prescriptions. It was the local farmer, Otto, and the wonderful food he raised. It was free bikes and dirt roads. It was cooking a Sunday dinner together. It was reading good books in the sunshine. It was exploring beaches and lighthouses. It was turquoise water and white sand. It was a million stars and the Milky Way.

Biking to the “old” lighthouse. Working on my coordination.

Presque Isle is a place you carry with you. Small but mighty. Peaceful and energetic. A place where one meets strangers who may be angels.

Regardless of the love fest’, we needed to get to Rogers City for a number of things, mainly an oil change, and we headed out On Monday morning (Labor Day) into a northwest wind that built. Not our first choice, but we felt good and the sun was shining. It was a bit rough when we turned up, away from Presque Isle Point. Not a ride for the faint of heart. A 20 mile event.

Four foot seas. We got through it.
Land ahoy!

Wishing you peace, wherever you are.
