Today we found out that our bid was accepted on a piece of property on Lake Michigan. It has three separate structures which we will be sharing with Mark's brothers Brian and Dave in one, and Jerry and Pat Timm (Sara's folks) in the other. We will have the other. Our's is the far left on the picture and the lake (Michigan is seen from our deck as well as one taken from the top of the dune directly in front. They are modest by anyones description but we are quite excited by the whole prospect just the same. It is exactly a one hour drive from our home. As we near our retirement (Mark's as I am already) we expect to enjoy some of golden years here walking the beach, enjoying the water and the quiet sunsets. Yup, this is what we worked so hard for all these years.
