The Petoskey Files

My great pal, lover of all things tasty, former roomate and bridesmaid S is getting her Ph D. at Berkeley.  This means she lives very far away.  However, she has been dating this lovely, smiley boy named K  with hair of goodness who is from Petoskey, Michigan.  He and S have been spending the summer at his summer cottage on Walloon Lake where they invited us to come for a visit. Hooray!  So me, P, and Clementine, the bravest dog in the world, piled in our car and drove over 800 miles through the night to arrive in this wonderland where there is a garden full of veggies, a dock onto the lake, a hand-cranked ice cream maker and a big floating trampoline.  The forthcoming posts will chronicle many of our family adventures here.
