The 1,000-Mile Great Lakes Adventures

Segment 6, Day 4 Eastport->Fisherman's Island State Park 15 miles

High of 64 degrees.

This part of the shoreline got rockier as I headed north. I found several petoskey stones and came across an outcropping of shale-like rock.

I ended this day in Fisherman's Island State Park, a rugged, wild place.

Once I got north of the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula across the bay, the wind picked up and the shoreline, while still rocky, got sandier.

Today I passed the 400 mile mark (now 414 miles total).


  1. Loreen, Glad to see you back on the trail and approaching the Petoskey/Harbor Springs area! (HOME!) When you get North of Harbor Springs, for a brief respite, follow M-119 along the shore to POND HILL Farm!!! Lots of growing goodies, farm animals, and great people!!!
    When you get to Cross Village, stop at Leggs Inn for the best home cooked Polish food this side of...well, Poland. After that, find your way to Sturgeon Bay dunes and enjoy a sunset!!!
    Watching closely! Robert

  2. Thanks, Robert!

    Our meal at Leggs was fantastic!
