Sleeping Bear Dunes & Detroit

The first day that we were in Suttons Bay, MI Adam took me to Sleeping Bear Dunes! He had told me stories about back in the day when they would go, so I was purtty excited about going! We pulled up to these ginormous sand dunes, umm hello, I'm talking Sahara Desert size dunes. I eventually gathered up the energy to climb up the dunes, took a little break up top, then ran down! It was a lot of fun!

Beware: Many pictures...

The first set of dunes. Once you climb this one there are many more to go!

Being the "oh so athletic girl I am", I had to take a breather!


Us at the top!

The water is so blue!

Toasty on his way down!

Yours truly, comin' down!

THIS was the biggest drop off I have ever seen. Please notice, the sign says "450 ft drop to Lake Michigan"

This picture is a little trickster, it looks like the water isn't far away, but it actually drops off in front of me. That little arrow is pointing to a person at the bottom of the hill. You might have to click on the picture to make it bigger.

You can kind of see how steep it is here! I didn't have the guts to go down. Well, I should rephrase that, I didn't want to climb back UP!

Random picture, but it was so pretty!


I don't think I posted this picture last time, but this is us kayaking..obviously.

Our next destination was Detroit! I have never been there, so my only thought was to the movie 8 Mile with Eminem in it. Ha, I mean, I'm sure they get that all the time, but it was really nice there! We stayed with his Aunt Phyllis, Uncle Bob, and cousin Taylor! During our whole trip in Michigan, I've really enjoyed getting to know everyone in Adams family, he doesn't get to see everyone that often. Most of his family only knows me through this blog, so when dinner time came, and I devoured two plates of pasta and bread, they must have thought that Adam was dating the biggest fatty around! Then around 11:00 pm I thought...

"They're really about to think I'm a fatty......"

Yep, that's right. I polished off the rest of dinner. At 11:00 at night. I think I might be part man. Really, I've got to stop eating more than Adam.

I digress.

After I stuffed my face for the third time in a 3 hour time frame, we played some cards, then went to bed! We had to get up early the next morning and head to Kentucky!!
