Up North

Home Fries spent the last week in heavenly northern Michigan with 28 of my closest family members, staying at The Homestead Resort near Sleeping Bear Dunes. Since it was rainy most of the week, we spent quite a bit of time out and about, taking in the sights and shops.

In Glen Arbor, I loved Cherry Republic's scones (cherry, of course) and Cherry Soda. Their t-shirts are also super cute and a cut above the typical tourist fare. You can also finds all sorts of M-22 goodies (so named after the Michigan road that runs all through the Leelanau Peninsula).

If you happen to journey up north, also check out the town of Leland and it's historic "Fishtown." The original wharf area has been preserved and is now home to charming boutiques and yummy places to eat. On your way out of town, check out the 45 North winery (run by a fellow DePauw grad). They do a great wine tasting....yummy and not-too-serious.
