Saturday: Tahquamenon Falls & Whitefish Point

Weekending: Pure Michigan

Rusty & I skipped town just as soon as we were able on Friday, headed north to Michigan's Upper Peninsula for a quick weekend getaway.


We stayed in a little cottage at Lakeshore Resort on South Manistique Lake that I'd found on Airbnb. After stopping for dinner and crossing from Central to Eastern time, we didn't arrive until about 11pm... unpacked and went to bed, set for a full day ahead!


It stormed on both Friday & Saturday nights, and was rainy & wet on Saturday, but we managed to do the things & go the places we'd wanted (and then some), and the colors were beautiful! I brought along this pair of Merrell clogs that Ann had given me when  she moved to Spain. I'd never worn them and almost gave them back to her over the summer, but I'm so glad I didn't! They were perfect for some of the "squish" hiking we did, but comfy & cute, too; that's always where I'm at in regards to shoes, no matter the occasion! ;)

I'll be back with more -- details & photos (so many photos)! I hope you had a great weekend!



I'm glad you had a great time and look forward to hearing more! The leaves are beautiful (and I love my Merrell clogs, too)!


How many of us are lucky enough to have TWO Pure Michigan travel posts in our Monday feed reader?! Thank you for sharing a bit of that loveliness!

Love the UP! Took a vacay there back in the 80s. Went to Mackinac Island too. Such good memories! Thanks!!


Ah. . . the UP! One of the most beautiful places in all the land! So glad you had fun - despite the stormy weather. (We were up north over the weekend, too -- although not THAT far north! But the leaves have barely started to change. WAY behind this year. WAY.) Can't wait to see/hear about the rest of your adventure. XO


Sounds fantastic!


You were intrepid to go on with your plans despite the weather. The colors look fantastic! Looking forward to hearing more!
