besides the typical souvenir shop fare.

When everything is fully cooked, they throw
kerosine on the fire so the fish oil at the top
of the pot will boil over.

Dinner is served--potatoes, onions, and fish.
They also had cole slaw, bread and other amenities.

I hate portajohns.
After dinner, we drove a little farther north to our friends' cottage in the little town of Pentwater. My family used to go camping there when I was a child. We also stayed at the marina in our boat when I was a teen.
It's changed a lot since the 60's.
We decided to walk through town.
The whole town was heading to Lake Michigan to watch the sunset.

Cute little street on the way to the beach
Unfortunately my camera battery died and I didn't
get any pictures of the beautiful sunset.
