On the road again!

This time to Traverse City, Michigan! For a whole week!

I took this picture from the top of the Grand Traverse Lighthouse waaayyyy up at the tip of the "pinky" when we were there three years ago.

Yes, Michigan is shaped like a mitten (the lower peninsula is, at least). Look it up on a map if you don't believe me! Michiganders are famous for using our hands to show you where we're from and where different cities in our fine state are located.

And I realized tonight that this will be the first week since the end of September that I don't have anything to scheduled at the hospital! (knock on wood) Of course if I were in town I would have had scans and appointments and things, but I am going away on vacation, so we put all of those off until next week. Another river crossed!

Hope you all have a good week, and we'll see if I'm motivated enough to post photos while I'm up there.

Good thing you're not from Italy. I imagine it'd be much less convenient to a.) always be wearing boots and b.) continually point at your foot to show people where you live!

Monique said...

Oh wait!! I read this before your last post (even though I already posted it on FB) Happy Birthday!!!

Jennie said...

I love Traverse City! Man, I miss Michigan. :(

I think I forgot to post a comment on your birthday too. Bon anniversaire !!

Awesome! Three words: pictures, pictures pictures. Yes, I'm begging.

Monique - lol on the Italy comments. And thanks for the additional birthday wishes!

Jennie - thanks for the birthday wishes! I'm jealous of your travels in Europe, so I guess it's all a trade off, right?

Zhu - OK, I'll work on the pictures!

That looks like good fishing water, but I do have a one track mind!

Have a great vacation!

You are the ultimate michigantrotter. Kind of like a globetrotter...with mittens.
