Hold your left hand in front of your face, fingers together with your palm facing away. Now using the pointer finger from your right hand, tap the nail of the left hand's pinkie finger. That represents God's country right here in lower Michigan.
Still trying to get "un-wine-ded" from the great weekend get-away with the love of my life. We drove up last Friday and stayed at a B&B nestled between the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and just south of Leland. I can't do the review of the Snowbird Inn any justice with my word thingys and the limited time I have right now, but this blogger's review sums it up very well.
Thank you, Lisa! It was a pleasure being your very first guests of the season.
Tina and I spent Saturday on the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail traversing the wine-ding roads (see what I did there?) through the beautiful rolling hills of the orchard's and vineyards. The first touristy wine trail event isn't until this weekend, so the crowds were fairly sparse - but that just meant 'a little bit more for Santy Claus... a little bit more for Santy Claus...'
We only crossed paths with one wine bus full of drunk women at the Leelanau Wine Cellars in Omena, but other than that it was clear sailing. We also popped in for a quick peak at all five Catholic churches we came across on the trail. These churches either got progressively more beautiful, or my dry red rose-colored glasses were getting foggier and foggier.
Before I knew it, it was Sunday and time to head for home. We didn't even hit half of the 24 wineries on the Leelanau Peninsula (nor was I ever asked to leave any of the establishments I did frequent) so I guess we have reason to go back soon.
Oh yah, today is our 30th Anniversary.
