Sherburne

With three weeks left in Minnesota, we found some time to make it to the Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge.



We hiked a five-mile trail by fields, and swamps, and woods.



Joe spent the majority of the time running from a cloud of bugs.



Other than the overly friendly flies, we saw some other winged creatures too.


How many double-crested cormorants can you spot?





We haven't even unpacked all of our boxes from the last move, but tomorrow we head up to Houghton to find a new home.

Petoskey


Have you been to Petoskey, Michigan? After having spent a few days camping, eating, and attending a wedding there, I've decided it's pretty great.



Next to our campground was a very adorable house with this even more adorable library:



There's a bike trail that takes you along the lake.



There's some cute and tasty restaurants, the American Spoon Cafe, for instance.


Here's the smoked whitefish Benedict I did not regret ordering--it's hard to turn down whitefish when you're in northern Michigan.



Here are some more shots (mostly of the lake I may or may not be missing dearly):















Even their drinking fountains are pretty.


After all our wedding duties were done, we found ourselves with some free time...something we don't normally experience when we're in Michigan.





We will be back, Petoskey.

So Much Michigan

Last weekend, we drove to Michigan for a wedding, camping one night in the mosquito-filled Rhinelander, Wisconsin, and camping three more nights in the adorable Petoskey, Michigan.

It rained a lot, but that made for some pretty travelling.




I still haven't gone through all of the photos--somehow I took over 300.

We did see a lot of deer on our misty morning drive through northern Wisconsin.


Thankfully, when we returned, our flowers were still alive. Good thing we bought succulents.


We added a bird bath in hopes of attracting more visitors, but I haven't seen a single bird stop by.



Joe's back to work, and I'm getting ready to fly back to Michigan on Monday for an interview. This will be the third visit in a month. Are you sick of me yet, Michigan?
