A great article reminding us of thankfulness.
A hidden gem lies in the heart of the Tahquamenon area, besides the falls and Shipwreck Museum is a small, classic theatre located in Newberry, Michigan. Throughout our travels, we have visited numerous small town theaters, including our own Old Regent in Allegan. This one is different. Special. Beautiful. From the outside, the unlit, deteriorating marque hides a real gem. Hand painted murals that line the entry way and theatre, ornate glass fixtures, and a stunning ceiling that most passing motorists will miss. And the theatre needs help! If it cannot collect enough funds to switch to a fancy digital screen, the doors will close. Please visit this hidden diamond when visiting the Tahquamenon area, the beauty speaks for itself!
When traveling the winding 123 North to Paradise, Michigan, you will pass a small family owned bakery, North Star Bakery. You MUST stop! All the bread is made from an 15 year old starter and baked in a brick oven. Did I mention it is in the middle of nowhere?! Only open in the summer months, the owners bake up quite a delicious variety of breads and flat breads with local ingredients. M gave the blueberry bread 1000 thumbs up. Accompanying our chili, we devoured a loaf of blue cheese bread. Smell-o-computers would leave you drooling. Please stop by next time you head to Paradise, Tahquamenon, or Whitefish Point. You can thank me later. Nine years ago, we stopped by here and enjoyed a mouthwatering onion tomato flat bread. So thankful that this little bakery is still around!
Labeled the best pasties in the UP and praised by the Shipwreck tour crew, we stopped in for a quick snack at Mudldoon’s Pasties in Munising. Our snack turned into a mini meal as E and M devoured two pasties with gravy. Being traditionalists, we devoured beef pasties (rhymes with nasty). Also available are chicken and veggie. M the family mini-foodie gave it 2 thumbs up.
Read this and just had to share.
