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.

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.
