We're Back from Saugatuck
We are back from vacation in Saugatuck, Michigan. It was a warm week good for beach lovers. I spent a lot of time eating ice cream, hiking across dunes, struggling with sudoku, and reading books. It was good.
The photo to the right shows a chain ferry that takes people and bicycles across the Kalamazoo River every ten or fifteen minutes. It is used by hundreds of people on their way to the beach.
Many people know about the ice cream shops, but not as many know about the gelato served at American Spoon. There are some unusual flavors, like burnt caramel and pumpkin, as well as a rich chocolate and tasty strawberry. I need to go to the store more than once next time.
