This past weekend Lila, Eva and I returned home from a week-long vacation to the Keewenaw Peninsula in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I grew up there, and we caught up with relatives while there. Here are some photos from our trip.
We took a leisurely drive up and spent a morning site-seeing in Taqhuamenon Falls State Park. If you visit the park, the brew pub at the upper falls serves some tasty grub!
An evening at Abigail’s parents’ beach house near Keewenaw Bay
We picked up pizzas and root beer one evening and headed to Abigail’s family’s beach house on Lake Superior. Abigail is my brother Peter’s girlfriend. We had a stone skipping contest, my brothers disappeared in kayaks for a while, and we roasted marshmallows as the sun set.
White City lighthouse and beach at Jacobsville
After a nearly fruitless evening looking for thimbleberries, we headed to the beach at Jacobsville. One of my young cousins here took a weather-cleaned bone as a souvenir from the remains of a bald eagle’s meal out on the walk to the lighthouse.
