Getting Away!


So...the entire family...(3 kids, DH and the dog!!) went away for two nights/3 days!! It was absolutely wonderful! In a summer that has been mostly rain, we had wonderful weather! No internet, no TV, no phone (except for cell in emergency)...and home cooked meals in the cabin!


I did not plan activities...the kids found their own....canoeing by the cabin, badminton, ball, walking to the small town for slushies...it was great! It was kind of bittersweet as well, our oldest, who is 18 came with us, and this might be the last year that she was so eager...but she DID have a fabulous time....dispite the fact that she lost every card game she played to her dad! LOL


Our dog thought that DH was trying to kill her....taking her to that giant bathtub two days in a row!!! She was ready to jump into any car that would take her away and she's not a social typ dog! LOL

Here are a few highlights of our little trip (we were only about 2 hours from home).


Canoeing at the cabins......this photo is my two daughters, my son went as well, only later, and I didn't get a photo.





The three of them together at the waterfront. This is right at the edge of town, you can see how close some of the houses are!



The dog travels in style as well...her own seat in the van! LOL


My girls staring at some black cows...staring at them! LOL....look at the view these cows have!!!!





The fog hadn't yet burnt off when we got to the beach to walk.....



My 3 walking on the beach! This beach and surrounding area are popular for fossils.



Looking back towards the town....



Have a great day everyone!!!!


Hugs, Marion

It looks like you had an absolutely wonderful time. Can I ask where you stayed. I live in eastern Michigan and we're always looking for something to do. My father was born in Canada and we spend a lot of time there when I was young.

I like the sound of getting away without internet and such! I'm glad you had a wonderful time!
