This weekend, Jack and I traveled into the wild wild north of Michigan to celebrate our 4th anniversary.
We left Friday afternoon and drove straight up 1-75 towards the U.P.
I really hate long car rides, so we stopped anywhere that looked interesting, like the Tanger Outlets in West Branch (the smallest outlet mall I've ever seen). We ate dinner at 9 pm at Chippewa room in Mackinac City, where we found physical evidence of the elusive Jackalope creature
and then finished out our drive, ending in Sault Ste Marie, USA where our phones politely informed us that we were in Canada and could be subject to excessive data charges.
The next day, we visited the Soo Locks, getting there just in time to see a ship pass through the boatavator.

Sunday saw us down in Mackinac City for a couple hours where we debated what souvenirs to purchase. Jack bought me a print of four otters, as they are by far my favorite wild animals (not counting dragons of course). I'm going to display it in my sewing room after I get it framed.
All in all it was a wonderful and relaxing weekend. Hope your weekend was at least as much fun!
