Hello South Haven!
Its been a great summer of moving and getting settled, working and playing, hanging out at the beach and pool, and a bit of exploring in between. We are still a bit homesick for our Magnolia, Arkansas friends, but are super excited about our new Michigan adventures.
Although the whole summer has felt like a 24/7 vacation, we wanted to get a trip in before the kids head back to school. So, last week, we headed North. In four short days we visited Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes (voted the most beautiful place in America in 2011), Munising & Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, and Mackinac Island &Mackinaw City. In miles, it was just short of 900 driving, 6 hiking and 8 biking.
I didn't tote my big-girl camera around much, but it did make the 3.5 mi trek (round trip) across the dunes.
