Charlevoix and Earl Young
Charlevoix is a neat little town. The tone seems to have been set in the 1930's when Earl Young started building his unique stone houses. For years, they been called the "Fairy Houses," but lately they've taken on the nickname "Hobbit Houses." I'll post a couple of pics so you can see what I mean.
The harbor year is very well protected, we actually have been able to sleep soundly, no waves slapping against the hull or grinding from the pilings.
Once again we've met some great people. Last night we hosted a couple from another boat. We served "Painkillers" and they brought pate'.
Our new favorite drink, the Painkiller, is:
1 ounce orange juice
4 ounces pineapple juice
1 ounce cream of coconut
2, 3 or 4 ounces of Pusser's Navy Rum, to taste.
Goes down SO easy, but packs a punch. Enjoy.
