As our Anniversary Junking Adventure continues, we finally arrive in Saugatuck, a quaint little town on the Kalamazoo River leading to Lake Michigan.
Me mourning the loss of my adorable hamper.
Hubby mourning the loss of his blue mermaid.
(Confused? Be sure to read Part 2!)
Saugatuck is wonderfully quirky. The cobblestone streets are lined with neat little shoppes, breathtaking yachts bob along the big boardwalk, the scent of freshly made fudge wafts in and out of the crowds of tourists, and it brims with history.
I did say there was freshly made fudge here, didn't I...?
We discovered this adorable stove vignette in the ever popular kitchen store in the center of town.
As you wander through town, there are homes that thrill your vintage yearnings.
All of them complete with picket fences and arbors.
Then it was on to the boardwalk lined with big
Names on the boats can bring a giggle...
or a sigh.
We slowwwwly made our way back to the car. To the AC! It seemed that everyone was walking in slow motion due to the heat and humidity. We were all wilted.
We were ready for a reprieve.
We drove along the coast, oohing and ahhhing over the amazing views of Lake Michigan...and reveling in the cold air washing over us from the vents.
Sigh.....it was time to head home. Our gaze lingered over the lake we turned the car east .... and
be still my heart!
Our eyes fell on this beauty.
Just waiting for us to move in.
To lovingly give her a new wash of white paint and some new rockers on her grand porch.
To fill her rooms with love, laughter,
and sandy feet from beach.
After we plant our money tree..... (*moan*)
Shaking ourselves free of our dreamlike, moronic state,
we made a quick stop at a little farm market to check out their goodies, and get a closer look at their rosemary trees.
Last stop of our adventure was, of course......
for ice cream!
We couldn't eat them quickly enough.
The drips were gaining on us!
But, boy....were they good!
As was the entire fun, memorable day!!
