"Becky and Rosa's Visit......"

Friends from Madison, Becky and her daughter, Rosa, came for a short visit last week. We had one full day to "show them around" and chose to take them over to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park.

Here is Rosa trying on one of the several "bear" hats at the Visitors Center.

After leaving the Visitors Center, we drove over to the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, stopping at the first of several "scenic views". This one overlooks Glen Lake.

Our second "scenic overlook" is of the backside of the Dunes Climb, and gives a beautiful view of North and South Manitou Islands. Unfortunately, it was quite hazy on Friday while we were there, but still beautiful nonetheless.

"Ms. Photogenic"......

Our last "scenic overlook" was right above the Lake Michigan's shoreline.........and we were waaaaaaaay above it!

Don, Becky and Rosa went a short way down the dune while I continued on and stood on the deck overlooking the shoreline.

Between where I was, and where they were, is a small stand of windswept trees. This couple attached their hammocks to a couple of them, making many people envious, I'm sure. ;)

Don, Becky, and Rosa then joined me on the deck overlooking the shoreline.

Beautiful views despite the hazy conditions......

After leaving Sleeping Bear Dunes, we drove down to The Cabbage Shed in Elberta (across Betsie Lake from Frankfort).

We had a wonderful visit, although too short, with Becky and Rosa, and look forward to their next one.
