    After checking out of the motel and grabbing some breakfast, we headed off to take the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive in the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore. It had been a few years since Tara & I were here, so we wanted to check it out once again. Aside from some noticeable changes at the 450' drop stop, everything looked the same!

    After we went on the scenic drive, Jeff & Becky and Tara & I went our separate ways. While Jeff & Becky had some errands that they wanted to do before heading home to pick up their kids, Tara wanted to head to the Mission Point Lighthouse. The water level is much lower than we remembered, but everything else looked pretty much the same. Much warmer than when we were here last in February, however!
