Summer Daze

Posted by Picasa
This has been a whirlwind summer of the best kind for us. During the winter months we purchased a cottage on Lake Michigan about an hour from our home. Starting in late April we have been there on an off trying to make it our own. It is a seasonal place with no insulation and requires "winterizing". We do have a wood burner but it is a futile thing when it turns really cold. Nonetheless, we have enjoyed it so much. The lake is what it is truly all about. Sunsets each night are a highlight. Along with walking the beach each day for me and sharing it with our friends and family as well. Three A frames on a dune. Ours is the one most west with Timm's (Matt's in-laws behind us) and Mark's brothers sharing the 3rd unit which they rent a bit of the summer to others. It's been a labor of love and great enjoyment and will be host to many memories for all of us.
