Vacation Station

View of Silver Lake from our balcony

Two weeks ago, Jonathan and I celebrated our seven-year anniversary by taking a two-day trip to Silver Lake and Pentwater, Michigan. If you haven’t ever visited these beautiful cities, it’s time to schedule a trip!

Our third floor room at the Waterfront Dunes Resort overlooked the view of Silver Lake and the sands dunes. We rented a wave runner and cruised the lake. We enjoyed the scenery, but more importantly, we created major waves! (Sorry little kayaks…you should have rented a wave runner.) After nearly tipping twice, we docked by the dunes, climbed the tallest one, and ran down like a couple of kids. It was awesome!

That evening, we drove fifteen minutes north to Pentwater, jamming to the tunes of my beloved 80’s music.

Pentwater is a small village with a gorgeous marina and quaint shops. Our favorite stores were Gustafson’s Antiques, Storybook Village, and the Nautical Shop.

Gull Landing:
Jonathan’s Salmon

Gull Landing:
My Pasta Dish. Yum!

One of the hottest spots was Gull Landing. We loved this restaurant so much that we ate there twice (dinner and lunch). Yes…it was that good. At dinner, they had a live band covering classic jazz hits. Jonathan ordered salmon, and I ordered pasta. It was incredible.

But the best part of all was…the coffee!

Douwe Egberts Coffee
Life Just Got Better!

It was a Dutch coffee called Douwe Egberts. It was rich and smooth. Upon further investigation, I located Douwe Egberts not only online, but locally in the International Foods aisle at Meijer! Now I can enjoy a cup or more of this delicious coffee every day! Hooray!
