I spent a wonderful weekend near Tawas City with two lovely ladies from my Gilda's Club young adult group. There are a lot of inland lakes in this area and one of the girls recently bought a house on Round Lake.
The Sand Lake firefighters were having some kind of special weekend, featuring Fireman Burgers, games for kids, and a fireman water balloon fight! Unfortunately we missed out on that one.
There was also this funny Budweiser car at the festival thing.
In the evening we went into Tawas to wade in Lake Huron and look around at the town. It didn't take too long, there's only one main street!
I hadn't been to Lake Huron before, so I crossed another Great Lake off my list of lakes to visit. I've now at least seen all of the Great Lakes!
Although Tawas is small, it does have possibly the best store ever:
I didn't actually get fudge or ice cream here, but I had to take a picture of the sign!
My friend and her husband have a pontoon boat that we took out to the sand bar that divides Round Lake from Indian Lake, set up some chairs, and took turns enjoying the sun and kayaking across the lake.
Looking over the sandbar into Indian Lake. Indian Lake was several degrees cooler than Round Lake.
This is how we set up the chairs - yes, we were sitting in the water.
Kayaking. I'm in the orange kayak!
It was a great weekend! So relaxing, and I was really happy to kayak again, I haven't kayaked in years! The only kind of weird part was that there was hardly any cell phone reception in the area. I had no idea places like that still existed!
