"I don't know if there is a word to describe a peninsula that's part of another peninsula, maybe "super-peninsula." They can use that if they want."
In this hilarious, yet introspective look on a remote and serene corner on the world called Copper Harbour, Michigan, freelance writer John Donavan shares his love for its 75 quirky residents, its single drag strip, its dozen places to stay, and half as many places to eat, its few quiet souvenir shops, its art studio, its laundromat, its lonely but loved book store, and its complete lack of cell-phone reception.
Surrounded by wilderness, wonder, and solitude, Donavan shares getting lost in the natural beauty, forgetting that the noise, and the hurry, and the craziness of world even exists, adding "it's kinda like my church."
