Going to keep it brief for today. We’re here in Traverse City relaxing and soaking up the joys of this playground for the rich and famous. Similar to the Hamptons of Long Island, NY, Traverse City and the surrounding Grand Traverse Bay area is a place where the people of Detroit and other Michigan metropolitan cities come to unwind, relax and party …it’s safe to say, “we like Traverse City”.
Whilst performing a variety of chores, which surprisingly didn’t include doing laundry, we’ve met loads of very nice people today. First of all a big thanks to Jeff of the City Bike Shop owned by Steve & Julie Baesch, for giving Trusty and Steed a once over and getting them back to supreme working order. Secondly, whilst having dinner tonight at Amical, a lovely French restaurant on Front Street, we struck up a great relationship with Nate, one of the chefs and our waiter/server who we think was called Shane (sorry Shane if your name is something completely different). We also got chatting to Sue on the table next to ours, who upon hearing about Our Epic Journey donated to MS after hearing about our story …thanks Sue.
We’ve really enjoyed this rest day and are excited about getting back on the road tomorrow to experience more of these ‘little jewels’ dotted around the shores of Lake Michigan.
FYI - we have no Internet connection tomorrow.
