O tter Creek - Courtesy Of Michigan Nut Photography Let us walk this lonely shore to Otter Creek, ... Where it flows into the big lake. We will sit in silence on the snowy bank, ... And do nothing ... But watch the clear, cold water, ... And listen, As it tumbles over the speckled rocks. To do nothing is enough. For here, in this sacred place, ... To do Nothing ... I s Everything. See You In Leelanau Up North, Chris Visit A Leelanau Landmark: Otter Creek - Where you can practice "the art of stillness" in a most tranquil setting. Located about 5 miles south of Empire Beach. It's a strenuous hike along the water's edge, … or an easy car ride via M-22 to Esch Road. Well worth the trip.
