More Charlevoix

So Charlevoix is a very nice little town in the upper western-side of the lower penninsula. Got that?

It has a beautiful marina right in the downtown area filled with lots of big, fancy boats. The main street is lined with shops and restaurants. Like a lot of towns up north, it's a nice place to get away for a day or two.

Charlevoix is also one of the places where some of the rich have their summer homes.

We went for a boat ride on Marissa's dads boat.

There is an inland lake, Lake Charlevoix and of course Lake Michigan. This drawbridge opens for small frighters and tall sailboats.

We only stayed one night and left at about 11:00 on Saturday. It was a nice weekend and it's always nice to spend time with the kids!.

What a lovely place. So nice to spend a weekend away, especially in the nice weather. And going boating looks like fun!

Oh my!! I think you and Rich ought to buy a place there, and invite all of us!! OR, I'd be your maid. :)

Have a super weekend, Jeanette!! ((hugs))
