Two weks from now we will be sitting on the beach of Lake Superior in Paradise,Michigan, watching the sunrise, sipping our coffee. In our jammies. DD and I discussed different things we want to tweak in our list, but preparing the two houses for vacation time is something we have down to a science.
We have indoor shut-offs for power and water to initiate, turning off water supply hoses to washers, turning down temp on water heater, lawn mowing, berry harvesting, mail retieval bags to dear neighbors,etc.

I am looking forward to DD driving this year so I can actually SEE the views and watch the wonderful sight at the top of the Mackinac Bridge when we cross it. The ships look so tiny from there,,,
we will actually be seeing some of the same ships when we go to the Soo Locks in Sault (pronounced Soo) Ste, Marie,Michigan.

    How lovely! We used to go to Lake Erie every year as a kid. I wanted to take my kids this year for a week... or a least a few days, but my word, it's expensive! I was hoping to be able to rent the house where we went as a kid, because it's owned by a friend of my dad's, but apparently he lives there in the summer, so that's out.

Enjoy your time off and time with your DD. It sounds like so much fun!

    I've only ever been to southern Michigan. . . which is beautiful too I think. But I have heard lovely things about Sault Ste Marie. Enjoy your trip!
