Michigan Vacation

Our friends Meg and Dale retired this year and moved up to Northern Michigan. They own and unbelievably beautiful lake mansion home and even more gorgeous scenery surrounds their home. They live right on the water-one of those homes that actually owns a small section of beach. They invited us to spend a week with them and we did and had just the most amazing time! We went on lots of hikes, beach walks, boating, some sightseeing (their section of MI is responsible for 75% of the nation's tart cherry production so we saw and tasted all things cherry), bike rides...lots of fun and relaxing stuff! We did so much more than we would have if only John and I had orchestrated it...and we loved it! Thank you Meg and Dale for having us out to your house-we were so blessed by it and hope that we get to return next year!

MMM!  We love cherries!

Hmm...what's this?  Sand?  Should I eat it?

Yes, I think I will eat it

Another simply gorgeous sunset

Even Libby figured it out!
