Camping i Michigan / Camping in Michigan
For at komme dertil, måtte man køre over "Big Mac", hængebroen, der var verdens længste indtil Øresundsbroen blev bygget.
We arrived home a few days early due to persistent promises of thunderstorm, so here I am, back again. We went camping on the Upper Peninsula here in Michigan (if you never heard about that place, it's okay), which is the part of Michigan that is not the "mitten". Apparently, that is the place to go for vacation in Michigan. A giant peninsula filled with forests and beautiful spots.
To get there, we had to cross "Big Mac", the suspension bridge that used to be the longest in the world until the Øresunds Bridge was build.
The camping ground was close to St. Ignace, and right next to Lake Huron, one of the 5 great lakes. (In Michigan, everyone is very proud of the lakes, and it is common knowledge that "4 of 5 great lakes prefers Michigan".) You might as well think this was the view across Øresund, right? It was so pretty and hard to imagine that this was "just" a lake.
We had food made on campfire and over gas, and among other things, I was introduced to "croissant-pancakes". They tasted okay, and apparently, they are a classic thing to eat while on camping in this family.
Den tiltrak en del opmærksomhed, og den sidste morgen nåede den også at sætte i nogle ordentlige hyl fordi den åbenbart ikke gad gå længere og måtte lokkes med mad. Hunden var IKKE begejstret. Men udover grisen og de helt overdrevet store campingvogne var det nu et meget almindeligt og hyggeligt sted. Man kunne tage bad gratis. Det kunne danske campingpladser godt lære noget af!
Every morning we saw this lady. WITH her pig. What do you think?
It attracted quite a lot of attention, and on the last morning, it managed to scream quite a lot because it didn't want to walk any further and had to be lured home using food. The dog DIDN'T like this pig.
But apart from the pig and the extremely big campers, it was a quite normal and very cozy place. You could bathe for free. Danish camping places could learn something from this!
