Our home for the evening was the Travelers Motel in Onekama, MI. It was small and somewhat homey, but charmingly decorated inside—including even a lighthouse-shaped light!



The morning’s complimentary repast continued the Michigan theme of “Do It Yourself.” We crept into the dimly-lit office and filled Styrofoam cups with coffee beneath a sign reading, “Please do not fill Thermoses with coffee.” The pastry breakfast consisted of one’s choice of individually-wrapped pastries from a basket. The offerings included one (1) big cinnamon roll, one (1) “Breakfast Claw,” three “Berry Horns,” and three “Glazed Doughnuts.” The boys took a pass on these gustatory delights in favor of string cheese and cheese-flavored crackers from the snacks we had in the trunk.
