|The clearest cleanest water. And so blue!|
Sunsets were fantastic!
Spent most mornings doing this...
Digging for Petoskey Stones!
We got a couple bags full. Only a few really good ones worth polishing. It is quite addictive! Next year we will be more prepared with spray bottles and buckets and much better shovels! It was like mining. They can be hard to spot dry so you have to have water to put on them to show the corals. Click HERE to find out what in the world they are!

Cute video about the stone!
|my haul of stones!|
After working up a sweat digging it was time for a dip and believe me the water was a little chilly! Look closely at nephew and you'll see! The temp ran about 72*. Too chilly for me! I waded but only got IN once to my waist.
Michigan is one of my favorite places to visit. I could be happy the rest of my life being able to walk along this lake and look for stones everyday! Did I mention the pie?! Cherry pie! Fresh made with fresh Michigan cherries! Dave stopped at the House of Pies on the way into town and bought me a still warm from the oven cherry pie! And whitefish,mmm! Great Lakes whitefish is delicious! We had it twice. Go HERE to read about whitefish. A record whitefish was caught in Lake Michigan in July! If you go to Michigan you have to have a fish dinner!
Here's a link to the 7 Wonders of Michigan. The video above was a submission to this contest, alas he didn't get chosen but all the places on this list are amazing. You must plan a trip to Michigan!
Watch for installment 2 on this trip! Too many photos to share for one post. Might make loading the post slow for you with too many. Up next the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore and pics of hubby and nephew climbing the humungous sand dune they aren't suppose to be on! Tahquamenon Falls, Mighty Mac, a very long suspension bridge, and Lake Superior.
