on vacation.

on vacation I howsweeteats.com

So, every single trip that Eddie and I have taken together – as in, just the two of us, no one else – for the last four years has been a rain, wind, cool weather and more rain. No really. EVERY single one. Pretty sure that mother nature hates us. With no sign of sun in the next five days. Either way, this is the time of year when I bombard my blog and instagram with completely repetitive and somewhat boring photos of my all-time favorite place in northern Michigan. There is so much much to come.

    I can’t remember where you go in Michigan, but I feel like it was in/near Traverse City. If you want to get out and go in search of, well, not rain, there are some really cute little towns north of TC that are adorable. I love Leland, Suttons Bay, and Northport. Looks like Leland might be nice tomorrow (partly sunny/77). In Northport, you can be on the bay side of the peninsula and then drive over to the lake side in less than 5 minutes. Sunsets on the lake are insane.

    Michigan overall has just been a rainy, stormy mess the last little bit here, after a completely dry summer! It’s been weird. I myself am headed back to school today, in southern Indiana, and am NOT looking forward to muggy temps in the 90s.

    Have a nice rest of your vacation!

    Still looks relaxing……The only problem I have about the Great Lakes, is that I think that I’m going to get a lobster dinner or some seafood. I’m such an east coast girl!

    I know that you savor, adore, and cherish your time in Michigan! And I hope it’s everything it always is for you and more!

    I’m on vacay now too, trying to savor my little corner of paradise before the hub-bub of Sept. begins!

    Cloudy or not, every single picture is gorgeous. And the food, as usual, looks to die for.

    You’re in my hometown! Ah! Such amazing food and views. I loved growing up up north and always find it odd when people vacation there because it’s all I know.

    I don’t know why, but I looooooove rain. I’m so weird, I know. Cue “I’m only happy when it rains…” And yet, I live in sunny FL and love it here! Tons of thunderstorms in the summertime and it makes me soooo happy!

    Hope you still have a beautiful and fun vacay despite Mother Nature’s failure to cooperate!!

    Northern Michigan is the best. It looks like the weather is supposed to be better the next few days, so I hope you are able to enjoy some sun while you’re around!

    See, ya missed all the sun we’ve been havin here in Oregon!! Portland is an hour and a half from the coast, nice drive, and there’s the Tillamook cheese factory, you can tour it, plus sample their yummy cheeses, and ice cream, at the end, plus a beautiful drive down 101… Along the coast… There’s always next vacay!:-)

    I was in Boyne last weekend. The weather was cool and gloomy, but it cleared up each day late in afternoon- early evening so there were great sunsets. Of course I thought about all the Merchants We plan to go back in mid-Sept. too.
