I know I said I’d be back on Tuesday, but really I am still recovering from our whirlwind six day Michigan vacation. This post is going to be the equivalent of sitting in my living room with a projector and slide show. So ummm, I won’t be offended if you leave. Go on then. Just leave. Sigh.
Still here? I like you. Would you like some popcorn or a stiff drink before we start?
Mackinac Bridge that my husband made me cross. I have a slight ‘thing’ about bridges, I have an even bigger ‘thing’ about making your wife
break out in a cold sweat antsy and paying $7 to spend approximately 15 minutes in the Upper Peninsula before going back to the lower, but it made Dave happy.
I like making Dave happy since I am usually making him nuts. It’s a nice change of pace, isn’t it?
A little note about the large scary bridge? The guard rails are incredibly, freakishly low for a bridge that height. Trucks have a speed limit of 20 miles per hour because they can blow right off the bridge.
Blow. Right. OFF. The. Bridge.
And you wondered why I have a slight ‘thing’ about bridges?
I climbed approximately 5 million stairs to get to the top of Arch Rock on Mackinac Island and I was pretty sure that I was going to die, but it was beautiful and we laughed the whole way up.
The reason for the laughter? Riding bikes after fifteen years of not being on them, spending time with my BFF and her Marvin, and Finnegan telling Dave to bike faster as he was riding in the bike trailer.
Look at that water!
And the fudge. Oh the sweet sweet chocolatey fudge… there is a store on every corner and they have so many varieties it is mind numbingly delicious. My favorite? The white chocolate caramel + sea salt.
Up next are the photos from Petosky + Traverse City. Don’t worry, I’ll make you a drink for that one too. Maybe something with cherries.
Right after I sleep.
Vacation is fabulous, but so is sleeping in your very own bed.
