Traverse City Here We Come

Everything is packed.....even a swimsuit! HAHA! I can't tell you the last time I had it on, but you never know. There is a pool at the hotel.....I don't think the lake will be even remotely close to being warm enough for me!

The snacks are all in the fridge waiting to be thrown in the cooler in the morning. The dogs got baths. The dog/house sitters are all set. The camera batteries are all charged up and ready to go. The alarm is set for 4:00 a.m........yes, 4:00 a.m......we want to get through Chicago before everyone else wants to get through Chicago and our reservations are made for a two hour cruise on the Manitou and our 3 hour kayak trip down the Crystal River! Vacation time is here and I am so excited.

The weather is suppose to be nasty tomorrow for the drive, but we really aren't in any hurry and hopefully it won't be crappy all day. The next three days look wonderful!

I told Irv I was leaving the computer home and get this........he said to bring it in case we want to look something up! So, the laptop will be coming with, but I don't anticipate being on it much.

Have a wonderful rest of the week and I will be back soon with pictures and stories to share.

It's Time!!

I'm making a list and checking it twice......gonna make sure I don't forget anything when we leave on our mini vacation to Traverse City on Wednesday. Irv is running some last minute errands, laundry is just about done, house/dog sitter is lined up and we are counting the hours.

I've been weather watching and right now it looks like a stormy day Wednesday for the drive up, but then a couple days of partial sun and cooler temps which is exactly how I like it.

Tomorrow I will call and make our kayaking reservations and also the ones for our ride on the tall ship. I think there will be enough nice weather for that....and probably the dunes and the scenic drive up the peninsula. I am so excited!

I haven't decided whether the laptop is joining us on our little trip. If you don't hear from me for a number of days.....you will know it decided to stay home!

Have a great rest of the day and I'll chat with you soon!
