Let's talk about what is so great about Michigan especially the Upper Peninsula. I have lived here my entire life but I continue to find new and wonderful things to visit and learn about.

Cruise Ships on the Great Lakes
The following piece was on-line today at www.freep.com. I'm looking forward to seeing the Clelia II next summer.
Someday, our ship will come
In 2009, two graceful cruise ships will ply the Great Lakes. The Pearl Mist, a brand-new, 108-suite ship, will do sailings from Toronto to Chicago, and the refurbished Clelia II, another all-suite ship, willtravelbetween Toronto and Duluth, Minn.
The ships, offering eight- to 10-daycruisesthat start at about $4,000 per person, will stop in Mackinac Island and Houghton, but neither will stop in Detroit because there is no suitable dock. Detroit's Port Authority is scheduled to begin building such a dock in downtown Detroit next year.
