A couple of weeks ago my Shug and I took a couple of days and went to Saugatuck, Michigan. It's not that far, a couple of hours away, and we used to go there quite a lot, before house building.
It's a quaint little town
with shopping, eating, wine tasting, and relaxing.
The stores are mostly boutique type stores. (I've made a lot of these!)
It's very garden-y too!
This is one way to grow herbs if you don't have any yard!
There are quite a few places to eat,
and some of them are right on the water.
OK so here's the thing I used to tell my 'older' friend. I used to not like red, at all. And I told her I noticed that old people like red, and they like petunias! I was probably in my 30s at the time I said that. Well, guess what...I like red...and petunias!
And there is one thing I have discovered about us, and vacations, or even little get aways. We need a place to stay, before we go. If we don't have one, we spend too much time trying to find one. It was during the week and we knew the town was full of Bed and Breakfasts, Inn's, and a couple of hotels. We figured it wouldn't be difficult to find a place to stay.
But when we first arrived in town, there wasn't even a place to park. This is one of those towns that you just park the car and walk everywhere. And we checked a couple of places to stay that the sign said, "vacancy", but there wasn't any rooms available.
This hotel sits right on the water. Saugatuck is a harbor town.
The next day we left Saugatuck for some more harbor towns, which I will share with you in the next post.Cindy Bee
