Sunday, more trucks in St. Ignace!

Sunday, Sept. 18, 2011
Having had a late night, we slept in on Sunday morning.  We decided to go downtown St. Ignace to see if those trucks are still here - they are!  We didn't get to talk to the drivers, but we did get to examine the trucks of which they are so obviously (and justifiably) proud. Every inch of these beuties is shined to a high degree.  Paint jobs that tell a story, beautiful colors, polished chrome like we used to have on cars.  Turns out this is the National Assn. of Show Trucks show, and it happens every year here the 2nd weekend of September.  Cool.
We finally cruised out of town around 1:00, heading west on US-2.  We stopped for lunch (pasties, and pie for tonight).  Our next stop was the Cut River Bridge - one of only two cantilevered bridges left in Michigan.  Beautiful structure, but you can only see it from below or the side - from the .it just looks like any other bridge!
Next stop was in Epoufette, to get some dried fish.  Stopped in Manistique for some groceries, and then on to the Garden Peninsula and the Bay De Noc.  We're camping tonight at the Fayette State Park, near the town of the same name that is now a ghost town.
Pirate theme paint job - complete with 'gun ports'!!
