Down by the lake lives a little, old library filled with stories and memories and creaky floorboards. Islanders gather around a nautical tiled fireplace to read books, exchange lake glass, and research historical markers. You can see Round Island Lighthouse from the back windows and her white light flickers when the sun goes down. This mint green place might just be my Gatsby-esque “green light.” ...

Summer is here and there are very few things we can do in the current situation. Cycling around the Mackinac island was an awesome way to spend the weekend! This beautiful island in Northern Michigan is rich with historic landmarks, nature trails and a cycling route along its entire deep blue and turquoise coast! Would ya’ll love to cycle around and breathe in the fresh air too? Let us know in the comments!!

The Great Lakes have over 35,000 islands. Of these, 30,000 are in Lake Huron. Here are two of them. Round Island & Bois Blanc Island


I think this might be the ideal spot for a cold water dip. Where’s your favorite place to dip into the Great Lakes?
