A trip on the eastern end of the U.P., to Whitefish Bay is an adventure filled with treasures. And thanks to Lynn Virtanen today, we get a glimpse of two of them. Her first photo is of the Iroquois Store, which among other things, sells hot dogs and hot fudge sundaes. Lynn attested to the fact that they really do have hot dogs, but she didn't say anything about whether she tried one of their hot fudge sundaes or not. :->

Now myself, I was thinking that it might have been nice to pick up a few of those "dogs," along with a sundae or two and head out to wherever Lynn's second shot was taken on Point Iroquois. Looks like there's a nice bench there to sit and have a little fall picnic and take in the view. Even though the temperatures are a little cool for ice cream, you wouldn't want it to melt, so you'd have to eat that sundae first. But that's OK, it goes along with the adage: "Life is short, eat dessert first!"

Thats a pretty area. We have camped at the Brimley State park and had a nice time. They have a beautiful sandy beach there. Nice pictures of the boardwalk.

Well, we picked a fine to move, but it will be worth it. We are moving to Lake Linden the middle of January. We found a place.

Mickill, Congratulations on being able to return to the UP. I remember moving from Iron Mountain to Water Street in Hancock on December 27, 1971. We were having a typical Copper Country winter day; we spent the remaining snowy winter days getting our home in order. When we left our beautiful Copper Country on November 27 (Not because we wanted to, but because there was no employment in the UP at that time.) we left in blizzard conditions. You are indeed blessed to be in the Copper Country!

Thank you for the beautiful picture of my favorite lake. Take care everyone and have a wonderful day!

What a neat store. looks like the simple life.

On one hand, I should be terribly jealous of you Mickill for moving to Lake Linden, one of my favourate Michigan towns. On the other hand, I must say congrats for being able to do so.

The Dr. and I just spent the weekend in Socorro, NM and it was absolutely wonderful; dry air, clear skies, nice temperatures. We didn't want to return to Houston, but that little thing called employment kinda forced our hand a bit......

Congratulations on your upcoming move, Mickill. Lake Linden is a nice town. It would be on my list of possibilities if I could move back to the U.P.

We want to say, 'Thank You' everybody for the congrats and comments. I know about Lake Linden. My uncle has lived there for at least 30 yrs. and my mom lived in Lake Linden til she passed away in 2006. We just fell in love with it. Just wanted a slower pace of life and Lake Linden has everything, soon to be including us. ;O)

Now that shows some real Yooper spirit, moving to Lake Linden … in January, no less!

Mouse, moving for a slower pace of life...You must be leaving a hectic job in the big city, can't blame you.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Tuesday, November 17, 2009 - 03:44 pm:

Good photos.

That slower pace of life, and the absolute beauty
of the Keweenaw is what lead us to buying land in Lake Linden/Calumet. We hope to build a house and, God willing, retire there soon. Our friends in Illinois (well, not all, some are northwoods types) think we're crazy to move to a cold climate!

Mickill, I am so happy for you to be moving to Lake Linden. I'm biased, of course, as I grew up there. But it really is a wonderful little town. Where are you moving? I wouldn't want to be moving in January, though, lol!! My hubby's up there right now, helping my mom out with stuff. Maybe we'll finally get to meet.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, November 17, 2009 - 06:35 pm:

Oh yeah, love the pictures, too!
