Spring's official arrival was last week but you wouldn't know it in these parts. So I am sharing some summer memories of a Girlfriend's Getaway to Saugatuck - a resort town located in the southwest corner of Michigan on the lake.

We enjoyed our long weekend here. We had perfect weather and enjoyed eating at restaurants on the lake, taking a ride on the paddlewheeler, going dune buggy riding, putting our toes in the sand at Saugatuck Dunes State Park and attending a Saugatuck Community Theatre production of Game Show, a comedy with audience participation(Don't know if this is a national production, but if you get a chance to go see it, do it. I really liked this show!). We didn't take a ride on her, but Diane is the only hand-cranked chain ferry left in the United States. Her operators blow an air horn (she has the right of way) and they take her passengers 100 yards across the river for the bargain rate of $1. And her operators seem to be strong, young college students with lots of energy to do all that cranking.
Oh, how summer sounds so good right about now!www.walkingontravels.com2014/03/27/friday-postcards-thingvellir-icela/ I'm linking up to friday postcards at walking on travels - go check it out!


  1. Ok, Now Saugatauk is on my list for this summer. I have to ride that ferry!

    1. I can't believe that we didn't ride her! I guess now I'll just have to go back this summer....
