Our friends the Walker's joined us again this year with their daughter Olivia, departing St. Louis on 8/1 under the cover of darkness at 2:20am for the 9 hour northern journey to a place were the sunsets are among the best in the world (seriously) and the Blue Moon ice cream is a local favorite at the Park Dairy drawing locals and tourists alike who wait in line for ever just to get a taste. Another Ludington (the city that Epworth is in) attraction is the lighthouse and of course the S.S. Badger which crosses the lake twice daily from Manitawoc, WI to Ludington making it easier to get to Michigan versus driving all the way South and around the bottom of the lake. She leaves Ludington in the morning at 8am, returns at 6pm and then back across at 8pm. It is a place you have to experience to understand. So if you want to find a fun family spot look up Ludington for a summer trip. You won't be sorry.
We took over 400, yes four-zero-zero pictures, and we will share the link as soon as we upload them all. But below is a small but hefty dose of the fun days we spent with our girl. Tomorrow is back to the old bump and grind. We just have to wait 11 more months.............ugh!
Jumping waves in the lake with Mommy
Always on the front door to remind you.
Greeting the carferry
Tricia teaches Walker how to do a cartwheel. Funny stuff...As Walker says, "you can't make this stuff up!"
First Epworth beach stop the day we arrived. Windy but a memorable moment.
