7/31 Discovering Frankfort

It was a sunny, Sunday morning.  The walk to church was along the waterfront and then a short distance up to church.  We passed the Chamber of Commerce, where they had this mural on the building.  
After church, we went to a good Jewish Deli, L'Chiaym.  I got an everything bagel with cream cheese and lox for lunch.  Yum.

After lunch, we took advantage of the heated pool here at the marina.  It was refreshing.  Then it was time to go off exploring.  When we were arriving yesterday, we saw many white buildings with red roofs.   They turned out to be the Coast Guard station here.
Next to the Coast Guard station was an art museum that displayed local artists.  It was a good take in and free.   Walking back up the hill, overlooking Bestie Lake was an historical marker that identified that this was where Fr. Marquette was originally buried when he died on the way back from Illinois to St. Ignace.
The view of Betsie Lake from there was so pretty.

Finally,  I walked up to the beach.  The dunes extend through this area of Michigan.  The dunes are high and the beaches are wide with soft sand. 
From the beach, one can see how large this safe harbor is. 
This very large ship was heading north and seemed to take up a good portion of the horizon.

Tomorrow, we will spend another day here.  We will be waiting for our forwarded mail to arrive.
