Cache Maintenance is always terrific fun when you end up in Empire. The Empire Beach has such a gorgeous sandy beach, and great views of Lake Michigan. Dick worked on the cache while I luxuriated in the views.
If you're in Empire and it's time for lunch, we like Joe's Friendly Tavern. It's friendly, the food is good, and the wait staff is pleasant and efficient. What more could you want?
We did a nice drive around Benzie and Leelanau Counties. We feel lucky to have such great places nearby
