Okay, I’ve been a really bad blogger lately. Quite honestly I had been feeling pretty uninspired. I was stuck in the same routine, I was stressed, and was starting to feel overwhelmed. Last week though Bryan and I went on vacation to celebrate our four year anniversary, and I came back feeling revived and ideas started flowing again. So starting Monday I will have new pieces to share, but for now take a look at our trip to South Manitou Island (in Leland, MI)!
We hike 15 miles of the island in the time that we were there. We camped for the three nights on the south side of the island, and hiked north up to where the cemetery is listed on the map below.
This is the ferry that dropped us off at the island two hours later.
We made it! Bryan checking the way we needed to go to make it to camp.
The second day we checked out the old lighthouse, which was beautiful. The water was so blue, it seemed almost tropical.
We found the smallest toad ever!
Florence Lake was beautiful, and a lot bigger than I had expected. There were hundreds of dragonflies and butterflies flying around everywhere when we got there. Super creepy.
One of the four shipwrecks on the island!
The hard life of terrible vision. One of the old farms.
Lunch at the farm.Snakes were all over the farm!
Bryan made us some bracelets, the fell apart shortly there after. We made dinner on the beach the last night!
Bryan shot a bunch of panoramas, these are my favorites:

It was so beautiful, and really just what we needed. Have a good weekend, and get ready for new pieces to come Monday!
