I traveled to the tip of Old Mission Point from Traverse City. I have not been there in a few years maybe even 10 years. I like taking the road that travels along the west shoreline and look at the houses overlooking the bay. and a usual I had to stop and get some photos of the lighthouse. It also seems like there are more wineries since I was there last time. I don’t know why but I never made it over the town, or what’s left of the town of Old Mission a few miles south of the lighthouse. With a peninsula full of fancy wineries and extravagant houses it was this old boarded up building that captured my attention. I am not sure if it was a hotel, a general store or a saloon or maybe all the above but it made me wonder what they people way back then. I can drive up the peninsula in my jeep in less than an hour but I can only imagine how long the journey was by horse and buggy or a sleigh in the winter. I wonder if many a weary travelers stopped here for some rest before heading back down to Traverse City.
