A few weeks ago, we drove from Philadelphia to St. Ignace, MI. It is…looking at Google Maps…a 13 hour drive? Lies! We were in that darn car for at least 15 hours.
And while I appreciated the words of support on IG…they were, overall, much too peppy. Next time, I need less “you can do it!!” and more “you poor thing!” mmkay?
A Night At The Breakers: A Lake Huron Beach Respite
We were originally planning to drive all the way through to Marquette, MI, but that would’ve added on another three hours. So we pulled over at The Breakers Resort in St. Ignace (after a phone call where I grilled them on their COVID-19 practices) and proceeded to have a wonderful night.
Our room opened up on Lake Huron, and we kept the sliding glass doors open all night. The kids — after so many hours in the car — went nuts playing soccer on the little beach while Mike and I relaxed at the outdoor bar with drinks.
They had live music outside and the food was delicious. There’s the usual stuff (hamburgers, pizza,) but they also had freshly caught fish — and it ended up being some of the best I’ve had.
In the morning, they converted their breakfast buffet to a sack lunch, which they packed to each of our specifications, and we ate it overlooking the lake.
All in all, it was a serendipitous find, one we can’t wait to go back to.
On the boys: The boys’ hoodies are sold out, but Hanna Andersson makes similar ones (even the pink!!) that are on crazy sale right now. J.Crew is still making Pax’s quirky sweatshorts, but this year’s pattern is tie-dye.
