The two RV Gypsies saw several oddities in
Oscoda and Tawas City, Michigan
June 15, 2013

The Paul Bunyan statue shown below is about 13 feet tall not including the base. The statue was originally built for a J.L. Hudson department store float which was used in a Thanksgiving Day parade in Detroit. After the parade in 1971, the statue was purchased for $50 and brought to Oscoda. In 1983, the statue was restored and covered with fiberglass by Sawyer Canoe. It is located in front of Furtaw Field, also known as Paul Bunyan Park. Oscoda hosts Paul Bunyan Days, a festival with a lumberjack show, chainsaw carving competition, and other events.

Unfortunately, the statues below were in need of a paint job, but the two RV Gypsies enjoyed seeing them anyway.

Below: A Giant Arrow: On M-55 in Tawas, in front of a farm, it looks like someone shot a giant arrow into the air and it became embedded into the ground. The two RV Gypsies think there should be a giant bow nearby that goes with the arrow.
