They’re Tearing Down The Great Lakes Shipping Company

Change is always difficult in life, and when a favorite spot of yours, shop, theater, restaurant, bar, closes, you feel a loss. It had been a part of your life, and you hate to see it end.

I get a sad, nostalgic feeling when I drive by Breton Village, by way of Burton, now. The long running, classic watering hole/restaurant, Great Lakes Shipping Company is coming down. It closed in May, but they have now begun tearing it down. Sniff...sniff.
