We rented a fantastic condo right on the beach of East Grand Traverse Bay.
Saturday morning Conor and I headed down to see Tim run. Despite aggrivating a pretty bad knee injury, he managed to finish the race.
Tim wasn't up for too much the rest of the day. Saturday afternoon we did take a nice drive up Old Mission Peninsula. The scenery was amazing - rolling hills, vineyards, wineries, cherry orchards, and fantastic panoramic views.
Sunday we took a trip out to Sleeping Bear Dunes. We donned our dorky sunhats to check out the dunes. We didn't attempt the climb this time.
After seeing the dunes, we took the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive. There was an amazing overlook atop a 450 foot bluff above Lake Michigan. I am kicking myself for not taking my camera out there - the views were spectacular. Watching the morons going down to the beach below, then trying to climb back up the bluff was pretty entertaining, too.
Then we headed back to TC for a nice anniversary dinner out and some fun time at the beach.
The new car was awesome. In true truckster fashion we almost lost some precious cargo from the roof and had issues getting the gas tank open. Fortunately we didn't drive off any closed roads.
