Just back from Michigan!

9 years ago

So guess what -we just returned from 5 days in the Sleeping Bear Dunes area. Un-be-liev-able. Truly, truly gorgeous, and exactly what I was hoping for on every level.

We rented a little house in Empire, and explored as far north as Harbor Springs, as far south as Frankfort, and as far east as Traverse City. Spent time in Elk Rapids, Charlevoix, Glen Arbor, Leland, Petoskey -and traveled through many more towns. I can't even list all the lakes we visited, but off the top of my head: Torch, Elk, Glen, Long lake (in Traverse Co. and the other one), Intermediate Lake, Lake Charlevoix, Lake Walloon, Crooked Lake, Pickeral Lake, Duck Lake, Green Lake, Platte Lake, Crystal Lake, etc.

I think my favorite town or village was Elk Rapids, perhaps because the library is exquisite!!!

So I think if we end up in Michigan, that will be the area. There is no doubt in my mind that we'd be happy there. No hesitation there.

Thanks so much to everyone for the great tips and encouragement.
