Petoskey to Cadillac, MI

We enjoyed coffee in the sun room of our lodging and at Petoskey and had a relaxing start before going to Charlevoix.  This is such a gorgeous mainstreet with Lake Charlevoix and the harbor on one side and small impressive stores on the other.  The restaurant we were looking for has gone out of business, but  we had corned beef hash and eggs at FlapJacks and then went to explore the wonderful Mushroom Houses and the Lake Michigan beach.

Next we went looking for Horton Bay and the general store that served Hemingway.  We found it, it looked great, but the road was in repair and we could not stop or turn off to see it.  So we continued on to Boyne City and through the glacial moraine country to Bellaire, a wonderful little community with Short's brewery - the goal of the drive.

Going to Traverse city we loved the waters of Torch Lake and of course in Traverse City we enjoyed all the flavors and tastes of Cherry Republic and American Spoon before checking out some wineries on Mission Peninsula before traveling to Cadillac where we spend the night.

A really strong south wind kept us from riding the bikes today, but tomorrow should have a good trail for us to explore.
