I was painting this morning and getting frustrated so I thought I would walk away for a bit and come and tell you about our weekend, or at least our Saturday.
The 18th was my daughters 14th birthday. Where does the time go?!
She wanted to go up to Glen Lake for the day with her BFF and since it doesn't take much for me to say yes to going there, I was happy to grant her birthday wish.
So my daughter, her BFF and her mom, which is also my friend, climbed in the Jeep and off we went!
It was a cloudy day and around 55-60 degrees, not too bad. It is about a 2 1/2-3 hour trip but beautiful all the way up.
We stopped at a lighthouse in Benzie County called Point Betsie. It is the oldest standing structure in that county and was built in 1858.
As of today it is managed by a group of volunteers that make sure that this beautiful historic lighthouse is kept up and cared for.
After our stop there we made it to Glen Lake and had some lunch and then ventured off to a few beaches along Lake Michigan where the girls looked for treasures in the shore.

We then made our way up to Leeland.
It was really cold there so we didn't stay too long.
We even stopped to photograph a local. :)
All in all the trip was fun and the girls and myself and my friend enjoyed getting away for the day.
I can't wait until the summer when I can go park my buns on the dock there and just relax in the sun by the water. :)
Have a wonderful week!!
