Boyne City 2018 Travel Diary.
I can’t help but keep this space here on Crumbs more like a personal photo journal, especially when it comes to my favorite place!
This year, I got SO many questions on insta asking why we come here, where we stay, all that jazz. I listed a lot of our favorites in this post from a few years ago. I’ve been coming here my entire life, my dad has been coming here his entire life, my great grandparents were FROM here, so it all started there.
It’s just my most favorite place ever!
While I’ve always talked about it being my favorite place, I’ve been confident in stating that a lot of that probably has to do with nostalgia. Yes, it’s gorgeous – I mean the water is aqua and turquoise and beautiful! It’s so fresh! But so many of my favorite memories live here and it reminds me a lot of my grandma. So I have been shocked over the last two years at how much Eddie has fallen in love with the place. I never thought anyone else would love it as much as I do (besides my dad!), but Eddie ADORES it too. I’ve never seen him more relaxed than he was on this trip.
Indulge me while I throw this extremely photo-heavy post up here. For the first time, I didn’t even take my DSLR. These are all taken with my iPhone!
Emilia loved her first dip in the lake! But there isn’t much that she doesn’t love.
I love the Boyne City farmers market so much.
Three musketeers! This is Evelyn, my brother and SIL’s adorable babe. She’s so cute that I could just eat her up.
Max’s stance. I die.
Also die over everything at the Boyne City Bakery. It’s SO good. They make crepes too and they’re fantastic.
Funny (but not) story: I’ve been taking pictures of these sunsets since I was around ten years old with disposable kodak cameras. I have been OBSESSED with them my entire life. I would print the photos and hang them in my room. I took the photos to college and taped them to my wall. They’ve always been so pretty and peaceful. And now, it’s amazing, because when I go take pictures of the sunset, there are like 45 other people taking pictures too since we have cameras on our phones!
I no longer look like the only sunset freak.
P.S. but Eddie took that pic of the sunset above. With his phone!
Tried this new-to-me rosé and it’s pretty good!
This is the whitefish from Cafe Santé and it’s my favorite whitefish in the area. SO GOOD. Brown butter lemon sauce. That’s all I have to say.
And these are the pizzas from Cafe Santé! Also delicious.
And this is the little love of my life forever.
Tacos from The Cantina in Charlevoix. Sooooo good.
The best panzanella ever!
I wish you could have seen what it took to get these photos. About three adults jumping up and down and screaming and shaking toys so the kids would laugh at the same time.
Truffle fries at Bay Harbor are legit.
Kilwins chocolate peanut butter to end the best week ever! xoxo
