Vacation Recap Part III Caroles Place

The last weekend of our vacation we spent at my cousin Carole and her husband Tearl's place on East Tawas. Her house is right on Lake Huron and it's wonderful!

This is part of her deck right on the water. We spent a lot of time sitting out here!


Friday night we got a visit from an eagle! I do believe this is the first eagle I've ever seen in the wild! I put a circle around it but you may have to click on this picture to see it good.


She has three dogs, one of whom is Maya who only has three legs! She sure doesn't let that keep her down, though!


Besides and eagle, they have lots of hummingbirds coming around, too! They even named them: Hummer, Hummy and Hummus!


This was the sun rise on Saturday morning....Beautiful sight to have with your morning coffee.



Saturday we went into town for a little while and hung out at the public beach. Here's my SIL Debbie...the only one brave enough to go in the cold water!


We took our metal detector (of course) and Carole loved it so her and Rich went all over the place looking for treasures! We have future plans to do some more metal detecting with them!


But mostly we just stayed at the house and gazed at the water!



In the evening they were letting off sky lanterns over the lake. Too cool and look at their palm tree that lights up! You probably can see it from pretty far away!



This is another of their dogs, Susie, posing for her picture!


We had a wonderful time of food, family and fun!

I have to admit it - I am still so jealous. Your pictures are so beautiful. What a beautiful place.

I bet that tranquility on the beach was the perfect tonic! What a relaxing place! And you got to see a wild eagle too!
