Getting Close

Ludington Michigan

The weather this week has been great. Temperatures have been warmer than in such a long time and expected to be better this weekend. The sun shining and warm breeze makes me think of those up north vacations. I can’t wait to spend time north.

Our summer months are short here and to be cherished. This photo was taken up north in Traverse City. Enjoying the sunset wishing the warm days and nights would never end.

The Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive

The Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive is a scenic route within Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Over the summer, actually late summer, I took my girls here while on vacation in NW Michigan. This was one of many stops on our adventure. I’ve been here a couple of times over the years with my wife and kids but this time it was just me and the girls. It was windy and being late in the summer we didn’t get to swim but it was still a great time. Despite the changes taking place in my life the summer of 2013 was one of the best in terms of vacations and spending time with my family. I wish there was a rewind button.





It’s the things we do on a whim that create the best memories. A few months ago it was warm enough to walk around in shorts, swim and rent a canoe. This canoe trip was not planned but ended up being one of my best memories of the trip I took with my boys.
