Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgia – Vacation

Last Summer we took the girls to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, where I got to share with my kids and immerse myself in nostalgia. During the late 1960s and early 1970s my parents took my siblings and me on several camping trips to Brimley State Park near Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. I spent hours walking along the beaches and out into the water – it was only waist-high for over one hundred yards out. During those trips we visited the lighthouses, rode the tour boats through the locks at Sault Ste. Marie, rode the ferries to Mackinac Island and walked around all day, drove through the forests and marshes and saw Tahquamenon Falls. These are all great memories for me. We retraced these paths on last Summer’s trip, including a trip to the beach at Brimley, and now my daughters have their own highlights to remember!

  1. Great pics! I really like Tacquahmenon Falls and Whitefish Point. I revisited both this July. I admire your younger self for walking out into Lake Superior; it’s a little too brisk for my liking. Maybe knee deep for me! 🙂
