Today I am sharing my brief, but spectacular trip to Michigan in photos!
The sun and I arrived together in Chicago!
Grand-dogs are the best and Bowser was happy to see me!
A beer or two at the Lake Ann Brewing Co
The weather cooperated nicely for most of the weekend!
Which inspired an impromptu "picnic"
All picnics should include silly selfies!
Clear skies to close out Friday!
Saturday morning snuggles with Bowser!
Early rising in northern Michigan is the best thing ever!
I walked to Lake Ann and the views were glorious on Saturday morning!
A quick breakfast with these two was so much fun!
The undertaking of the day was my son's new tattoo.
I just love how it turned out (and how well he endured the process!)
On to the Empire Hops Fest with my son and his lovely girlfriend, Jupiter!
I think they make the cutest couple!
Sunday included one more early morning walk to Lake Ann.
Harvest Festival at Vivi's school meant she had some of her own artwork this weekend!
Sunday night's clear, crisp skies!
And before I knew it the weekend was over, but flying into Chicago had some amazing views!
It was a whirl-wind weekend, packed full of so many good things!
My backyard pano was insane!
Monday’s sunset was truly amazing, but boy was I happy to get into my own bed!
And that, my friends, brings us to another weekend. One that will, at least for me, be much less busy! See you all back here on Monday and I hope you all have a great weekend!
I took so many photos while we were on vacation, and while a good number of them were taken with my phone – I did take a quite a few with the “big camera”.
Here are my big camera vacation memories. (With a few iPhone photos interspersed!) I hope you enjoy!
Have an awesome Tuesday!
P.S. I saw
this on kmkat & her needles yesterday and it is a wonderful cause. And, as kmkat says, the ultimate “potato chip knitting”!
Si quaeris peninsulam amoenam, circumspice or, if you are seeking a pleasant peninsula, look around you.
These words completely describe the beauty that is Michigan, but most especially in the Leelanau Peninsula between Empire and Glen Arbor.
Nestled there along the shore is the
Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive – a must-do IMO and we went more than once – a study in contrasts, as it were. Our first visit on a gloriously sunny day and a return visit on a very overcast day, with dark, broody skies.
Each day was gloriously beautiful in its own way.
I hope your Thursday is filled with pleasantness around you.
Grey skies, wild winds, and chilly weather – fall is absolutely here in Northern Michigan!
the beer is good.
And, so are
The diet… not so much!
