Mickey Lake Vacation

Doh!  We've been back for a few weeks now, but I just haven't had the time to write up a trip report.  I am however going to include some of my favorite pictures from the trip in this post.

We had a great time at the wedding!  It was so wonderful to catch up with friends we hadn't seen in a while.  It was a beautiful day and Mackinac Island is such a charming place, I love it!

The rest of the week with the family was great too (minus Jack throwing up at a restaurant we tried to go to.  Eeek!).  The first couple days we super hot (like in the 90's!) and we didn't have AC, but the rest of the week was nice weather and the lake was really warm.  There was a tiny island (Picnic Island) we boated to one morning and walked around for a little while.  It had very clear water and was a great spot to look for Petoskey stones.  We also visited Sleeping Bear National Park which has gorgeous views of Lake Michigan and some of the largest dunes in America.  One of the other highlights was visiting Short's Brewery in Bellaire.  Always good great beer and amazing sandwiches!  Totally worth the 50 min drive!

I hope everyone is having a great summer!  I can't believe it's almost over. 

Love, WW
