We mostly had a staycation but we did go away for a couple of days to travel around the Leelanau Peninsula here in Michigan. It is around two hours north of our home so the drive was not far which made the gas tank less expensive to keep filled.
We stayed just south of Suttons Bay which we arrived at around 11:00 AM on a Monday. You can travel any where you want on the Peninsula in less than an hour. After we arrived and checked in we were off to find some lunch. We had a guide book and a local pamphlet which gave us the best places to eat and things we should see in the area. Otherwise we had no real plans or times mapped out. We ate lunch on the deck of Knot Just a Bar in Omena. It had great food and beverages and this is the scene we looked out on while dining.
I am a little disappointed in myself for not buying a print in the shop above that I really liked. I always have a hard time deciding what I would like to take home with me when we go away. I hope to go back though so I may get it yet.

Leland was on our list of stops because hubs had worn out his Minnetonka moccasins that we bought quite a few years ago in the UP and needed to replace them. He also bought me a cute pair of red moccasins because the sandals I was wearing were hurting my feet. Here are a couple more pictures of Fishtown.
This was the best spot to stand on the whole beach. We usually pick up pretty little rocks and make stepping stones with them for our walkways at home.
After our short beach stay we were off to freshen up and go to dinner back at Suttons Bay. We had Whitefish sandwiches at Boone's Prime Time Pub and took a walk on the board walk behind the main street afterward.
End of day one.
