What a fun day! We snuck out of town last night and went up to our cottage, a/k/a The Little House. This morning we went for a drive into town and out to Tawas Point. We drove back into the state park area and pulled over to see the open water. What a sight this always is! The ice isn't as high as some years, but it was so beautiful. I can't wait to walk barefoot on this same stretch when summer gets here. I feel so blessed to live in a state with these beautiful great lakes.
At the end of the point is the lighthouse. Sure wish walls could talk, we'd be sure to hear some interesting old stories.
THEN WE SAW IT! We came around the curve and this beautiful old coast guard life station has been rescued and made into the most unique, wonderful home on the water. We peeked in the windows and WOW!
Can't you just imagine being up on the widow's walk with a telescope watching the freighters? We came home and looked it up (did I say it was for sale?) and again, WOW, way out of our price range. Guess we'll have to buy another lottery ticket.
After we left the coast guard house, I had Dick take me by my favorite little log house on the beach. Darn, still not for sale. It is old logs with a big fieldstone chimney. This little house just oozes charm. Oh well, a girl can dream.
We were going to stay until tomorrow, but the weatherman is predicting bad snow storms in Michigan - again. We kept debating, but finally decided to come home tonight and be safe. Can't wait to go back up VERY SOON!
Hope you all had a great weekend too.
Until next time...
