I needed a place to stay for a few days over the Memorial Day weekend, so I made reservations at Tawas Point State Park on my way up to Aloha State Park, near Cheboygan. Tawas was pretty deserted on Wednesday and Thursday, which is just the way I like campgrounds!
It was cold and rainy, and I have a horrible cold, so it was not until Friday on my way to Aloha that I got a chance to drive over to the light. Here are some photos of the lighthouse and the beach nearby.
I also took an hour to visit a cousin I had not seen in a while. She and her husband lives near Oscoda, and I was happy to see that she and her brother were still using the old furniture from the cottage that my dad had bought in 1951! I also spent a couple of hours doing laundry in town. I headed up the coast and found a very nice Michigan roadside park where I felt comfortable parking and opening my rear slide so I could put things away. Nice beach, also.
