October up North

We have gone North one last time this year to try and experience our favorite corner of Michigan in fall colors. We have booked a camper through airbnb a little bit outside of the middle of no-where, but it is quite cozy and we are close to Traverse City so all is good.
Camping life comes with many excitements such as going though the box of sugar and tea sachets to pick your favorite:

Or finding a spot you can call yours and yours alone:

First stop Saturday morning was Traverse City. Just to stroll through, now that we were in the area:

And then it was Cherry Republic in Glen Arbor. When we were there earlier this summer we talked about how awesome it would be to visit in October. Et voila:

I ordered the grilled cheese sandwich to end all grilled cheese sandwiches. Usually I don't bother to order such things but this one has Cherry bread, Cherry and fig jam, and has a Parmesan crust. Ouch!
We also went into the wine store there

Where I spotted Cherry spiced wine:

And made the big mistake of adding a bottle of cherry iced wine without checking the price tagđŸ˜± Oops. I didn't even check when I paid and only as we were leaving Glen Arbor did I see that it cost 60$........
We went a bit further north to hike in the wild:

Where we spotted paw prints that did not look too much like they came from a dog

Luckily we did not meet the owner of those feet.
And last but not least we got to hang out with Lake Michigan:

Sitting on the beach and listen to the thunder of crashing waves! It's something I often miss and highly appreciate when I have the chance.
Now we are back in our camper taking shelter from a rain storm and watching U of M Wolverines (hopefully) beating up MSU Spartans. Time will tell. But this is a very anticipated game and we have met plenty of people today dressed up either in maize and blue or white and green.
