10 Favorite Things About Our Old Mission Peninsula Family Vacation

Having just returned over the weekend from a wonderful, refreshing time with the lovely Robin, our kids and grandkids on Old Mission Peninsula in Michigan, I thought I'd take a few moments to list my top ten favorite things about that experience:

1. Introducing our grandkids to their first campfire-created s'mores

2. Evening fires on the beach

3. Climbing the dunes at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

4. Playing in the sand with the grandkids

5. Sunsets

6. Compline (evening prayers) on the beach or the deck

7. Old Mission Lighthouse

8. The distinctive beach at Lighthouse Point

9. The view from Sunset Sands

10. Watching my kids with their kids

Other highlights included the Old Mission General Store, Horizon Books in Traverse City, the memorable Apache Trout restaurant, and more. Too many to mention, and of course, every single memory made sweeter by the presence of my amazing family. It was a truly memorable week.
