Forestville, Michigan is located in what is known as the Thumb Area of our State.

I am home and to say that we had a wonderful time, is an understatement! Just look at God's glorious sunrise over Lake Huron. How peaceful to sip coffee on the porch and watch this sight together. Sheila's summer home is absolutely beautiful and I didn't take one single photo of the house...duh.

We didn't do any swimming but having your own beach is mighty fine. The peace and quiet brings healing to the bones. With NO television, we did much laughing, telling of stories and catching up...believe me, we did not miss the boob tube one lick.

Just travel down the porch steps and you are on the beach. Gorgeous! Sheila's gardens, are just part of the natural landscape and attract so many butterflies and birds that I sat for hours just taking it all in.

I leave you with this parting shot from the living room window. Sure is dark out there in the country. Good night all!
