Family Day Out (Old Mission Peninsula)

Last Monday Nate had the day off!
We decided we had to do something fun as a family.  
Have to capitalize on these times when we can!

We had not yet traveled up Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse, so that's what we decided to do.

The colors were beautiful, despite a gray day.
We stopped a couple of times at different scenic places; the scenery was gorgeous!

Up at the tip of the peninsula is Old Mission Lighthouse.  It was so cute!

A few hundred feet north of the shore of Old Mission Point lies on the 45th parallel of latitude:  the halfway point between the equator and the North Pole!

Even on a blustery, gray day, the scenery was lovely and the time together precious.

I love days that teach kids to have fun without spending great amounts of money. It looks like everyone had a great time. That lighthouse is on Mom's list to go visit. (Maybe next summer)

She'll love it! There's an old hand-hewn log cabin nearby, and the lake looks so odd. Be sure to call us if you're in the area!
