We stopped in one store, and it happened to be the store of my dreams. I think I was too tranfixed to take many pictures. They had things I've made myself (like my spring wreath on my front door), and plenty of homemade everything. Rings, photo frames, necklaces, aprons, skirts, etc. I fell in love. Brent walked right out the front door and sat on a bench out front.
Since this was not the "quaint" Holland, MI of my childhood memories (with tulips, and big wooden shoes, and a huge windmill) we decided to leave and try another town along the coast.
We hit Sagautuck, and then South Haven. We decided THIS (South Haven) was the town we'll probably come back to.
It had a cute downtown, and a great beach and pier with a lighthouse.
A graffiti covered door on the lighthouse.
Actually the whole lighthouse had graffiti all over it, and we came upon this one that made us laugh...
(tranlation....Grace is mad at Taylor...but he is sorry!) We laughed a long time at this...it just hit us funny.)
We know that when they come visit us in June, the farmer's markets will be open all along the way, and the flowers will be much prettier, but we thought this would be a good place.
We can't wait!
If there is anyone out there that's been somewhere else great in Michigan...let us know!
