Anywhere in the North Channel is awesome! Tons of solitary bays and anchorages
, and pretty good fishing
, late July-fresh blueberry picking!
Gore Bay has some nice little restaurants, great marina. Blind River has a great marina, and it's a bit of a trek to get to the grocery store, but you can use the bikes at the marina, taxi available as well. Great upscale restaurant, the 17, in Blind River as well. As mentioned, Spanish marina is nice as well. Meldrum Bay is nice, all new docks, and a liquor store, one restaurant with just awesome food
, but get there early.
If you get that far, Mackinac Island is a great place to visit as well, especially if you like the smell of fresh fudge and horseshit<grin> Tourist mecca, but worth the visit.
Rogers City MI and East Tawas MI were great places for us to visit, good marinas
, great restaurants......I could go on forever. Lakes Huron and Erie will keep you thoroughly entertained no matter what your desires...quiet and solitude, or big marinas
and great restaurants.
Have fun, I envy you your time and itinerary!
