Houghton MI (Low 55 Partly Sunny and Nice High 72)

Seafood Fest

We sure hope the ordeal getting Seafood Fest tickets is worth it. Seafood Fest is the annual fundraiser for the Rotary Club supporting local charities that is held on the waterfront within easy walking distance of our RV park. Combine easy walking access with no parking problems with what is supposed to be great food and we are in. Seafood Fest has a diverse menu featuring live lobster flown in from Maine, tender rib eye steak, lake trout, salmon, French fries, hamburgers, corn-on-the-cob, and more. 

We checked the website and advance tickets for $10 gets you $11 so we walked to the Chamber of Commerce to buy these discounted tickets but we were told not there. They said City Office so we then walked to City Office who said did you try the Chamber. Everyone was so nice so the runaround was funny, not annoying. They made some calls and our tickets will be at the Re/Max office the next day.

As you can tell a common theme in Houghton is walking, downtown and the waterfront trail is so close to our park that we just walk there. The next day on our way to lunch we stopped at Re/Max and the tickets were there as promised. 

We can't wait to experience our first Seafood Fest.  In the mean time here are a couple of photos of our campsite, the trees are blooming here since it is basically still spring here. There still was ice on the Portage River a couple a weeks ago.

The view from the window is from our dining table, not a bad view eating breakfast is it?
Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. Glad you finally got your tickets. Jim would love to join you for a seafood festival. The rib eye would be on my plate. Those flowers do make the most wonderful view with the water right there.

  2. Wow, what a morning view. I am in for the seafood.

  3. The view is beautiful.

    Seafood Fest...count me in!

  4. That sounds like a great way to spend a ten dollar bill. Be sure to take lots of pictures!! Lovely breakfast view you have there.

  5. A Seafood Fest within walking distance is a sure winner.
