Favorite Things Friday

My favorite thing this week is the place we vacationed when I was a kid, from when I was about 3 until I graduated from high school.  I've been back several times in the last few years.

Eagle Harbor, Michigan .. about as far away from civilization you can get.   Check out this map showing how far it is from our house in California.

The Eagle Harbor Lighthouse.

The dock in front of the Lake Breeze Resort.

Kelly & Robin at the stamp sands in Gay, Michigan.

Me, my mother, and my oldest sister, Anna.

A picnic on the beach in Eagle Harbor ..

In the winter, from November through April, there is snow on the ground.  I've never been there during winter, but I hope to some day.  This is a really old picture of the lighthouse above, in the winter ...

It's fantastic to have somewhere you go for holidays regularly isnt it? I just googled Eagle Harbour and it sounds quaint and charming. Like one of the out of the way places I'd love to visit.

Thank you for sharing something so special to you.

That looks like a great place to spend some time in the summer. One of my favorite family vacations of all time was to the U.P. of Michigan about 11 years ago. We didn't get to Eagle Harbor, but what time we did spend along Lake Superior was magical. Great post!

Happy Birthday, MLW II !!
