I tried to blog quick from Charlevoix, Michigan this morning and I did...but then when I tried to edit something it all disappeared. So now that I'm back in Ohio, I figured I'd try it again. First of all...Charlevoix is beautiful! It was showcased in an issue of Midwest Living as one of the best places to visit.
The town is filled with the quaintest little shops ever! Murdick's Fudge...YUM...and have you heard of The Taffy Barrel? OH MY GOSH! Here's a peek inside...
This was just one section...imagine like maybe 30 barrels filled with different flavors of taffy! (I know the whole barrel isn't filled, but it sure looked like it might be!) You just walk around with your little basket and fill it with whatever you want, take it to the register where it's weighed and then you pay for it! So fun!
It's places like this that made me fall in love with cottages and harbor living. Everything was in walking distance and it was just fun and relaxing and I got to hang with a few of my best friends! I could totally see this being a yearly visit! This is a picture I took with my iPhone. That bridge rises and lowers on the hour and half hour to let boats travel out to Lake Michigan.
On the way home we stopped at Tony's I 75 restaurant. It's a diner that is famous for it's BLT...made with a pound of fried bacon...A POUND! Oh my gosh...several people around us ordered it and totally cleaned their plates...here are a few pictures I found...
It was so much fun to watch the faces of people when their food was delivered! Crazy huge portions!
I also wanted to let you know that even though I don't have a huge amount in my little TPT shop, I'm still joining in on the fun and putting all of my digital files on sale! I just marked them down tonight and the sale will continue as the others will through August 13! Have fun shopping!
