And every one of them is completely doable! A lot of them right in this state.
I thought I would share it with you all today. So here goes, in no particular order.
1) Pick a huge bouquet of wildflowers from the side of the road.
They always looks so pretty and there is such a variety of colors.
2) Walk the Mackinaw Bridge on Labor Day.
It's the only time you are allowed to walk that bridge. I figure that is something that I will do
when we have a camper and can camp a few miles away from that area because as you can
imagine it's very crowded there over Labor Day weekend!
3) Go to the Upper Peninsula in the dead of winter.
It's pretty cold and snowy up there then but I bet the frozen waterfalls are fantastic to see!
4) Watch the sun rise on the East side of the state and set on the West side, all in the same day.
This is something I plan on doing this summer. We would spend the night in Tawas, watch the sun rise and then meander across the state to Grand Haven or somewhere and watch it set.
5) See the Northern Lights
I've seen them faintly but I mean a real light show!
6) Kayak to Turnip Rock
This would mean kayaking from Port Austin ( from the tip of the thumb) because the rock is on private property and the only way to see it is by boat!
7) Go paddleboarding.
That just looks really fun!
8) Snowshoeing at Tahquamenon Falls.
That also looks fun and would be done when we make that trip to the UP in the dead of winter!
9) Visit one of the International Dark Sky Parks.
I think the closest one is in Mackinaw City. The problem is it has to be a clear night in order for it to be worth the trip and in Michigan......well there is no guarantees!
10) Watch the Detroit Fireworks from Belle Isle.
So that would involve being retired or taking a day off of work because the fireworks are always on a week day. Also you have to get there early and spend the day because it fills up fast! But what a view that would be!
11) Go ziplining
I missed a great opportunity to zip line in Haiti when we were there in 2009. They had what they claimed was the worlds longest zip line that started in the jungle and came out over the water. It looked really fun! My son in law Brad went and said it was fantastic. Unfortunately I lost my nerve but I wish I would have just put my big girl panties on and went, because the likelihood that I will be back in Haiti someday is slim to none! But there are plenty of other zip lines around and I intend on going one day!
Anyway, that's it. Oh I have loftier ones, too, like going to Italy and visiting all 50 states and seeing the most fantastic waterfall located between Argentina and Brazil (can't think of the name) but those are things that probably won't happen. One can dream though!
What's on your Bucket List?
Until the next time.....
