A few years ago we decided to take a drive north for a short vacation. More often than not, when on vacation we had pointed the car towards palm trees and the ocean. We fell in love with Michigan. It was beautiful, peaceful and we found ourselves going back often the past few years. It seems to be the place we go when life gets stressful and we need to regroup. We spent last week in Traverse City and exploring the areas near there. Over the next few weeks I'll share some of my pictures with you. The weather was a bit "wet and dreary" the first few days, but that didn't stop us! I'm joining Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
