My family spent the 4th of July weekend up in Charlevoix, which is near the northwest tip of Michigan's lower peninsula. My wife's mother was born and raised there, and my wife practically grew up there too. Although Charlevoix is quite a tourist spot, it's more like home to Sara, and by extrapolation, me. Despite a fairly new herniated cervical disc, I had a great weekend, and was especially glad I was carrying :43: gear and not my Canons. I got a good chance to give my new 7-14 a bit of workout too. There are more pictures from this weekend, and from many previous trips to Charlevoix, at http://www.flickr.com/photos/ronssmith/sets/72157619386703947/ My 20-year old son Jacob (the former high school diver) doing a very nice One and A Half off the bow.
