Hey guys! This is going to be a mixed update of yesterday and today.
Yesterday I visited the Sleeping Bear Dunes! This is a popular tourist attraction that has been mentioned by Good Morning America, Sunset Magazine, and more! It was a long, hot hike up the dunes but it was worth it in the end. It has quite the amazing view too! After coming back down, we took a scenic drive and found a picnic table to eat lunch. We continued our drive, stopping at outlooks and admiring the green trees.
Today I had a very active and fun day! Right after breakfast, we drove down to River Side Canoe Trips to go kayaking! It was so beautiful. The ride was about two hours and boy – it was a work out! The lake was beautiful and it was super fun. We might do another kayaking trip when we travel to Boyne tomorrow! There was also a huge snapper turtle that was harassing some of the tubers! After arriving at the end of the lake, we ate lunch at a park to satisfy our stomachs. We drove home and then I decided to take a swim in the hotel pool. I decided to check out Grand Traverse Bay which is right next to our hotel and the water was super warm! I’ve never seen anything like it! It was shallow and warm and so much fun.
I definitely would want to kayak again very soon! Here are some photos below!
