Day 49 Sunday 8/23/09 Marquette to Munising, MI
40 miles
2271 Trip miles

Lazy day, late start. 2 flat tires. A beautiful ride along the lake with moderate headwinds. Had a great lunch at The Rubaiyat in Marquette where wonderful things middle eastern are prepared. The beet salad is exceptional!

My Warm Showers,.org host, Nancy returned from her weekend camping at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and decided to accompany me out of town for a few miles. She was very patient as I endured 2 falt tires, the first of the entire trip. A little whimsical side-diversion at Lakenenland, a roadside attraction/sculpture garden, where I met the artist Tom Lakenen, who is an iron worker by trade and artist by night and vacations! and enjoyed some outdoor music and hot dogs before finishing the ride to Munising Tourist Park just in time for a fabulous sunset. A little pricey for a rustic tent site,but the showers /bathrooms are brand new and there is a separate area on the beach for tents away from the RV park. My only complaint is the road noise nearby. Great smoked Whitefish bagel for breakfast and PC time at the Falling Rock Cafe and Bookstore, a locals' gathering spot, in Munising
