This is the puzzle from hell.

It is extremely difficult. I’m sure multiple margaritas don’t help either.


After our midday naps, we ventured out to Charlevoix to explore and watch the sunset.

To get there, we rode the Ironton Ferry , which has been around forever.


We oogled at this house.

If you have a few million, it’s up for sale.


Then we made our way to the lighthouse in time for the sunset.


And pretty things like this happened.


Check out the bridge being raised for the sailboat:


We found an amazing taffy store. Mary was more excited than a dog in heat. They had over 90 different flavors.

Someone spent a ridiculous amount of money on taffy.


We came home and had pizza, then sat by the fire and made s’mores.


I love the lake at night.


Why don’t I live here? I’d even let Mr. How Sweet come with me. I kinda miss the guy.

    haha, yeah a margarita probably did not help the puzzle putting-together.

    Wow that taffy looks ummm awesome! It makes me think of the beach I went to every year growing up — we’d go to this little store and get our fudge and taffy. Oh summer memories.

    I think you may have gotten your sunset money shots. They are so beautiful with the lighthouse silhouetted.

    Wow, looks like so much fun! That sunset is so beautiful… but that double-million dollar house is amazing too. Oh, and the taffy store… if I lived there life would be awesome.

    Even though Mr. How Sweet is immersed in all things thoroughbred racing from Monmouth Park and Nascar from Pocono, and has already reminded True Blood and the premiere of Rubicon, he kinda misses the Misses.

    Wow that’s gorgeous! What beautiful views!

    I’m usually not huge into taffy, but those photos for some reason made me want to go there and buy the shop so I could own all of that.

    OMG! I love that area of Michigan. I remember riding the Ironton Ferry as a young girl. We used to go to Boyne City to visit my aunt and always took a trip to Charlevoix. My nephew got married at The Bay Harbor Inn a few summers ago and it was a gorgeous place for a wedding.
