I received a call from my dear friends of twenty years, Amy and Kirk, who said they were off to Ludington, MI for a week of relaxing. I'd never heard of it, although, come to find out, it's quite a popular destination for my friends and family in Elkhart. They had extra space and wondered if I could make it for the weekend. I love to suprise myself and take advantage of an unscheduled plea and rework the routine...especially to go explore what I come to find out is a vacation paradise. I threw a few things in my bag and jumped in the car. Three and a half hours later, I was in the adorable harbor town of Ludington located on Lake Michigan. If you are looking for a quick get-a-way from the hustle and bustle, add Ludington to your list. It's filled with awesome beaches, state parks, festivals, antique stores and historic lighthouses...what a gem.
I loved these bronze statues at the Harbor Marina Park.

Had I been able to stay longer, I would have loved to charter a boat for the day. Next time.
Meet Sydney! I wish I had a better picture to share of her smile...or if I could have bottled up her laugh for you it's infectious! She is full of life and showed me some new dance moves and my heart melted everytime she blew me a kiss. Can't wait to see you again, Syd!
Don't you love it? So serene and peaceful.
The amazing sunset Saturday night.
