Okay we're playing catch up because we've been away for the week.
Nearly all of our pictures are nature pictures because we did a lot of camping and a lot of hiking in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan...
We did a lot of driving and had to make a pit stop in Mackinaw City so we camped right on the shores of Lake Huron and if you look close you can see the Mackinaw Bridge in the background
Ricki was a dab hand at making camp fires and got them all set up for us to light
We took a boat tour along the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore which is about 40 miles of exposed Precambrian rock which is all kinds of pretty colours due to the mineral seepage which has taken place
We did lots of hiking and on one of the trails Ricki found a throne for herself
She was also very good with directions and made sure to check the trail markers so we didn't get lost in the woods
During the evenings we relaxed on the beach and watched the sunset on Lake Michigan.
Ricki was useless in helping us set up the tent so it's just as well that she was such good company.
Lots of hiking...
We also visited the Lower Tahquamenon Falls.
To get to the falls we had to take a row boat out to an island and Ricki helped navigate the way
We also had a good dig around for cool bugs and insects in dark places
