Vacation Picture Journal
Friday morning at 7 am, we started our long trek up to Marquette, MI to visit my brother. Midland, where we started from is at the blue arrow. Marquette, our destination is at the red arrow near the top of the picture. So in other words, we went really freaking far north for the weekend.
Our next stop along the way was Sable Falls, which was absolutely beautiful. It was about 200 steps down to the falls and then 200 steps back to the car, so my calves were a little sore the next day. The view, however, was totally worth it.
Once we got to Marquette, the majority of our time was spent playing with my brother's new kitten. Her name is Skye and she is adorable, but possessed. She would be playing and then fall asleep in the middle of playing and then wake up 10 minutes later and promptly bite you and jump away. Completely adorable of course.
We also did a little hiking around Presque Isle on Saturday. It was a gorgeous if not windy day. There were big waves on the lake and we even saw some brave souls out surfing. My mom didn't send me those pictures yet, but I will upload them when she does.
We also ate a lot of good food (including a yummy U.P. Pastie - if you've never had one, find one and try it. They're awesome!), visited a lot with my brother and his fiance, hiked some more, and played our favorite game a few times. We finally left on Sunday at about one and Aaron and I made it home at about 9:30 Sunday night. It was a good and beautiful, but exhausting, weekend. Feel free to look at the complete set of vacation photos I have at Flickr (click the Flickr banner on the right side of the page).
I'll leave you with one of my favorite fall things in Michigan. The beautiful fall colors.
P.S. Sorry if the formatting is all messed up on this post. I'm fighting with Blogger right now and it's winning. Looks like I'll have to start looking into Typepad or something soon.
UPDATE: I think I finally got the formatting fixed. Thank Goodness. That only took me like 2 hours of fighting with the formating to finally fix it.
