Lafayette #1 – Adventures in NOLA

I never had any doubts that I was going to love New Orleans. There are few places that I’ve been that I don’t develop an affection for (ahem, looking at you Louisville…), but the way I feel about this place, well that’s something far beyond affection. My husband and I were in town with friends to embark on a cruise to Progreso and Cozumel, and we worked in both a day and a half before and a day and a half after to make sure we had time to enjoy the city. The day of the cruise, we didn’t have to […]

Until we got up to head out on the Navajo Trail/Queen’s Garden Trail. It wasn’t super easy to find the trailhead, because the maps all say it starts at Sunset Point – but you have to find […]

Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

You may or may not be aware that Michigan is made up of two peninsulas – the Lower and the Upper. Both are surrounded by four of the five Great Lakes. I love the Lower Peninsula. From Detroit to Grand Rapids. From Lansing to Mackinaw City. There is something to see and do in every nook and cranny. But, oh my word. Unless you’ve been to the Upper Peninsula, you have no idea how much more beautiful it is. Lake Huron is great. Lake Michigan is beautiful. But Lake Superior… that is unlike any lake you’ve ever seen in your […]
