Holiday in Saugatuck, Michigan

There have been no posts for a while, last week we were on holidays. We had a wonderfully relaxing stay on the west coast of Michigan, the quaint little town of Saugatuck.  It lies on the coast of Lake Michigan, a lake so large it almost feels like an ocean. The coast is dotted with sand dunes and beautiful sandy beaches. It is quite uncommon to have such beautiful fresh water beaches. We stayed in a log cabin about 2 miles from the town called Kingfisher Cove. We can certainly recommend them.

We did a little of everything, beaches, sand dunes, we had lunches out, took a boat ride on Lake Michigan, bike riding, nice food (we ate tons of fresh blueberries, even picked a few), touring the town but most of all we spent a lot of time in the pool, a one minute walk. The kids loved it we were there at least twice a day and it was still hard to prize the kids away.

We had a rather large cabin so Randy and Lorraine joined us for the entire trip. They travelled up with us helped us all relax and kick into vacation mode. We certainly had an even better time since they joined us. They provided more adult company; Randy and I certainly played lots of chess. Having them with us certainly allowed us to do more with the kids too. Connor still takes frequent naps and having several extra hands helped a lot with child entertainment, cooking and general cajoling of tired kids (after hours in a pool).

Randy and Loraine – we had a wonderful time, truly a relaxing vacation, many thanks again for your company, friendship, humor and help on the trip!

As always, I took way to many photos. A selection are provided below but more can be viewed at our Gallery Here.
