Escanaba, Michigan

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 145 miles from St. Ignace to Escanaba, Michigan. We are now in the general region Mary lived for the first 14 years of her life and will be in this area for the next few days.

Yesterday, leaving St. Ignace,  we drove along U.S. Highway Route 2 West which we will follow more or less to the State of Washington for the about next five weeks.

Yesterday’s drive was quite pleasant. Route 2, considering we’re in Michigan…the land of terrible roads…was relatively smooth with only light traffic. For a good portion of the trip we drove along the shore of Lake Michigan…

Arriving at Escanaba we parked at VFW Post #2998…


Here’s the usual dinette photo…


I unhooked the Bronco so we could drive around Escanaba where Mary lived from 1948 to 1954. We stopped at the Sand Point Lighthouse…


and the adjacent Delta County Historical Museum where I found this image of Escanaba from the mid-1800’s…


Mary first lived in this house…


Her family moved away for a short while and when they returned lived in the left side of this duplex…


Mary really enjoyed her afternoon and evening returning to other places she remembered from her childhood remarking on how much somethings had changed and others not at all.

Enjoying visiting places you once lived is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
