Leland, Michigan is an unusual little town. It had a strong fishing industry until the 1970's. Today, although much smaller, there is still commercial fishing industry here but the town has also restored many of the buildings into shops. The area is called Fishtown and is at the mouth of the Leland River as it enters Lake Michigan. Note that the type of boat that is on this sign is the same as the Native American boat where I met the man the other day. He sells his fish here in Leland, too.
We walked around town. We did a wine tasting but really only liked the Hard Cherry Cider, so we bought a bottle. Then we went to a distillery tasting. The Cherry Vodka was excellent, so we bought a bottle of that, too. The town has a very large fish weathervane at the marina.
We saw this metal horse next to one shop.
Thanks to Pokémon Go, I was directed to this wooden flag on a wall to an inn.
I love exploring these little towns. Tomorrow, we head to Frankfort, MI.
