What I did
Late start today 10:30 am after my morning coffee from my favourite Coffee Shop. Strangest thing at the US border, the Customs Officer just asked what was the Province of my plate, checked my ID then told me to go! Was the easiest crossing ever. Planned on getting to St Ignace and made it at 6:45pm. In Michigan traveled @ 70mph and the further North I went the colder it got. Of course I didn't have the warm liner in my jacket. When I went over the bridge I froze, 200 ft in the air and the wind coming off the lake. I was glad to get a motel room and food! Next shop next door had a viewing platform of the bridge on top of the roof. As you know I love bridges so uploading a picture. Pleased with the day will be wearing warmer clothes tomorrow.
