Returning from vacation today. Nine days in Alpena, Michigan, and the Upper Peninsula. Splendid trip.

If you get up there, I highly recommend Munising and its Falling Rock Cafe. No drinking, just nice fun. Live band playing classic country tunes, good sandwiches, board games, books for sale, lattes. And a nice little Mountain Dew buzz.

And you can talk to locals who have heard the Sasquatch stories. My kids talked to a couple of teenagers who were there when the "Finding Bigfoot" TV crew came through. They said it was pretty funny stuff: "There's a squatch in those woods." They baited Bigfoot with pasties from a restaurant we ate at.
