08 Earl Young Houses

Charlevoix, MI

Starting our long passage down Lake Michigan, we stopped first at Petosky to see its Victorian architecture and then went on to to Charlevoix.  The last few miles were pretty rough, and all kinds objects (us, excluded) were tossed to the floor. Having promised Mary to stay moored whenever the waves were greater than about 2 ft, Pat suggested returning to Petosky for the night, but Mary wanted to press on even though we were quartering into 3-5 ft waves.  Today was even rougher, and so we stayed Charlevoix, giving us a chance to enjoy the town’s excellent fish restaurant and whimsical “Mushroom Houses” designed by Earl Young.
