Stay-cation in Saint Joe

(Saint Joseph, Michigan) When you live in what our good friend Ed Hamilton calls Beauty Land, then you do not have to fly across the Atlantic or Pacific oceans to relax and see a beautiful land.  We live where seemingly half the world comes to recreate every summer, so when we need to get away from all the beauty and beautiful people down here in Harbert, we hike on up to our county seat for a walk-around old Saint Joe.  Been there, done that just the other day, and the photographic proof is as follows:

The swivel bridge was open for boating.

Concrete evidence that Saint Joe is a working, commercial port.

We weren’t the only sightseers in Saint Joe the other day.

A delightful fountain at the base of the bluff.

No visit to Saint Joe is complete without a ride on the carousel.

Livin’ easy on the boulevard.

There is no coast quite as wonderful as the West Coast of Michigan.

This is our not-so-secret trail to Lions Park Beach in the heart of Saint Joe.

Up the foot bridge, and . . .

. . . away we go, from old Saint Joe.

A parting post card from Saint Joe.
