Yesterday afternoon we went for a "Sunday Drive" (on a Tuesday) and ended up in "Fishtown" in Leland. Fishtown is an assortment of old commercial fisherman buildings built along the waterfront now turned into gift shops along with numerous charter fishermen and a fish store that sells various kinds of smoked fish.
The waterfront is built along the Carp River outlet canal from Lake Leelanau into Lake Michigan. There is a small dam on the river and a large marina where it emptys into Lake Michigan.
We wandered around for a while and finally ended up buying an Ice Cream from our Niece, Johanna Schlueter who has a summer job working in the "Dam Candy Store". Johanna just completed her freshman year at Grand Valley State in Grand Rapids, MI.
