Went to Harbor Springs MI. week before last. What a beautiful place! I could have stayed forever. Lake Michigan is so blue and clear. This is a pic taken from the dock at the harbor looking straight down, see how clear you can see the sea grass growing all around?
Walked the shore @ Petoskey State Park looking for Petoskey stones and wading in the water. Might have found a stone, not really sure have to polish it to see!
Took a ride up to Mackinaw City and saw McGulpin Lighthouse and the Mackinac Bridge, what an amazing feat of engineering that is! Old Mackinac Point Light and Charlevoix South Pier light were really nice too.

Lots of shopping of course in Charlevoix, Petoskey, and Harbor Springs. Visited Cherry Republic, mmm best dried cherries in the world. Spent time petting an Irish Wolfhound named Sorcha. Quite a dog breed there! Saw the worlds largest cherry pie, ate delicious perogies at the Polish Cuisine restaurant, drove thru the Tunnel of Trees, ate Lake Michigan whitefish twice! And last but not least, we stopped off at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore and watched people climb back up the giant dune from the lake edge. What a climb that is! There is a sign that warns you of its dangers and if you need rescued you will be charged! Look close and you will see a man on the dune and he has his small son riding on his back!
A good time was had by all and I highly recommend this area for your next vacation!
