It ended up not being has hot as expected.
I am fine with that.
So we headed to Saugatuck.
It is beautiful there.
If you want to cross the channel (I believe it is actually the Kalamazoo River) you need to ride on this ferry that is on cables.
See the man in the orange shirt?
He is cranking it across.
I've never ridden on it, but it does look like fun.
First down the marina to look at huge yachts.
Then to the downtown area to browse around interesting shops.
There were also flowers everywhere.
I love these purple ones!
And note the herbs growing in rain gutters attached to the building just for the purpose of growing herbs. What a great idea!
You should go there.
So much to see, and the prices aren't too bad.
I do love purple coneflowers.
Everything seemed to be blooming too!
It was still morning.
Ice cream for breakfast dessert!
THGGM got peppermint patty.
For me, it was blue moon.
It has a very Dr. Seuss-ish look, doesn't it?
After strolling through Saugatuck we drove a few short miles south to Douglass.
There is a nice large antique mall there.
And I shall have you know, we bought nothing.
See? We CAN do it!
And you doubted.
