The GPS brought me home by way of M-43 and I noticed a sign for this fish hatchery. I'd never been to a fish hatchery before so I decided to stop. I guess that is one of the things I like about doing this blog because it gets me to do stuff outside of the box (for me).
The hatchery was established in 1927 and renovated in 1983. It is run by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and provides a number of different fish species for the Great Lakes. There is a little visitors center at the hatchery that is pretty neat.
All in all, I had a pretty fun day. The weather held up for the most part although it was snowy during parts of the day but it wasn't causing too much trouble. The fact that I got home at a realistic time was a plus as well.
I guess I'm gonna have to head back to get pictures of Grand Haven at some point.
