Have you ever grabbed your significant others, your toothbrushes and pajamas on a trip with no destination in mind? We did that yesterday. Typically, here in Michigan, a short vacation means going up north.
My wife and I have a common tie to Bay City which is at the base of the Saginaw Bay. It's where I grew up and it's where she taught third grade at Immanuel Lutheran School. The school is a ministry of the church where I grew up.
We both have fond memories of the area and made our first stop there and then moved on to go farther north.
When we got to Tawas City, we stopped and looked around, soaked up some serious sunshine and tuned-up our ears for the waves. Then we headed back to Lansing. We didn't stay overnight this time, but maybe the next.
