A Great Place to Relax

A gull catches some rays on the shore of Lake Huron.
I got to see a lot of Michigan on my business trips because I had a great boss who let me expense a rental car on weekends. On one memorable trip, when September was at its peak, I was able to venture to the "Top of The Thumb" of Michigan's mitten shape.

Port Austin is marked in red at the "Top of the Thumb."
What a great trip! The weather was perfect and the scenery was gorgeous. I had never seen one of the Great Lakes before, so I was very impressed with Lake Huron. The drive to Port Austin hugs the lake much of the time, which my desert soul found very refreshing.

I hope to go back some day and complete the drive all around the state. What fun that would be!

For those of you who may wonder where I've been, I've had a new health problem to play with, involving heart rate and thyroid. I won't bore you with the details, but it leaves me very weak and tired. It should be resolved fairly soon, I hope, and I hope to do better with my blogging.

I'm linking to Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer.

I've never been to Michigan but I have a good friend who calls it "home." It looks lovely and I hope to visit one day. Nice you appreciate your boss :)

Sounds like a great trip. So pretty. I've never been to Michigan. Maybe one day.
