Our Annual Pentwater, MI Trip

This weekend we took our annual fall vacation to Pentwater, MI this weekend. We go every Columbus Day weekend and it has become a tradition we greatly look forward to each fall. This fall we thought we weren't going to be able to go since I had a grad class scheduled...but thank goodness, I dropped it! It was a nice, relaxing time as always. It was so great to get away and have some down time! Take a look at the pics...

The beautiful fall colors are always breathtaking.

Just behind those trees is the beach we always go to.

We had beautiful almost summery weather.

We tried something new this year...on Sunday we headed up to the next city north of Pentwater for a couple of hours: Ludington, MI. It was a cute town, but still very small. We stopped for some ice cream after going to some antique stores.

We went the sand dunes again, but this time was different from last year. It was really cool...not quite as tall as the Silver Lake Dunes, but these were still fun.

We also went to Lewis Farms, which is an annual stop. We stopped at the petting zoo, picked our pumpkins, and enjoyed a caramel apple.

Of course we had to watch the sunset, because in the words of Rachel Perrine, "Of course you watched the sunset...that's just what you do in Pentwater!"

The little gazebo is the center of the town of Pentwater. Look at the beautiful trees and the lake right behind them!
