Lake Michigan Vacation

Bob and I just got back from a week at a cottage on Lake Michigan! We had a very relaxing and fun week, with a private beach in a great location.

We swam in Lake Michigan (the water was cold!) walked along the beaches, visited Sarett Nature Center, and hiked at Grand Mere State Park.

I finished knitting my Back Porch Shawl, bought a few skeins of yarn at The Sandpiper Bridgman, knit on the beach, and knit at Flick or Treat, where we watched The Old Dark House.

We ate gluten free pizza at Silver Beach Pizza, made a special trip to Sweet Bees Gluten Free Bakery in Paw Paw, bowled a few games at Peat’s Cider Social, and I enjoyed a wine tasting at Dablon Winery and Vineyards.

My favorite days were definitely the ones spent in PJs at the cottage. I read a book! (It’s been a while.) It was a fun read that I blew through in two days. Bob and I celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary. We enjoyed eating at Buck Burger and The Mason Jar, and shopping in Downtown St. Joe’s.

It was a beautiful getaway, not too far away, and a wonderful anniversary!

  3. I saw the post about the completed shawl, with its photo amid the beach grass – now I know where it was! It’s a warm and generously sized creation, and I love seeing you using it. (Like the new hairdo, too!)
