We’ve had our share of beautiful days this week.
Today is a rainy day which is good since we need the rain. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day and a very pretty morning when I took my walk.
I sure do enjoy my morning walks. Summer is such a beautiful time of year. Yesterday was another pretty morning.
It’s been a beautiful week.
It’s cool and cloudy this morning but I still enjoyed beautiful scenery as I walked.
Yesterday we went to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and had a picnic lunch at a roadside park, next to the Cut River Bridge. We hiked under the bridge and crossed it on foot. We enjoyed some beautiful views of Lake Michigan. We planned to visit Tahquamenon Falls but as we were driving along M-123 we started seeing smoke which grew increasingly thicker. When we got to the park to see the Falls we were informed that they were closed due to a large forest fire. The Duck Lake fire has burned through 18,000 acres of land. Since we couldn’t visit the Falls, we enjoyed a pretty drive on the Whitefish Bay Scenic Byway. We saw part of the North Country Trail that Kevin M. hiked last September. We stopped by Point Iroquois Lighthouse and enjoyed the view from the tower. Then we headed to St. Ignace for some supper. We made our way home as the sun was setting on a beautiful day. Luke did all the driving and even got to drive across the Mackinac Bridge for the first time.
On Thursday we traveled to St. Ignace and enjoyed the beautiful northern shores of Lake Michigan. We had a picnic lunch and of course we stopped for some fudge while we were in the area.
We are enjoying a two week vacation right now. Today we returned home from a week of camping at North Higgins Lake State Park. My Dad let us use his boat for the week so we had lots of fun going for boat rides, tubing and skiing. We had some rain the first two nights but had several days of beautiful weather. It was nice camping close to home.
Zachary, Josiah and I went to town to do our shopping this afternoon. Since no one else was going to be home for supper, we grabbed some food at McDonald’s and ate at the park.
