My Favorite Day

My favorite day (or days) each year are the ones spent cruising with the family down the lower Platte River, ending up at Lake Michigan in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. So glad we found the Honor Trading Post several years ago and have made it part of our lives!!

Beautiful Area

Everyone at the Honor Trading Post was so hospitable. And the Hawaiian pizza was as delicious as it was pleasing to the eye. I had a good time kayaking on the Platte. The area was beautiful.
