Summertime in Michigan

Traverse city wineries

We chose a blistering hot weekend to head up north to Michigan.  The whole weekend was a perfect combination of wineries, bike rides, and beach time.  On Saturday we went up to Traverse City to check out some wineries and breweries.  The brewery Hop Leaf was cool because we got a tasting of six of their beers that came in a leaf holder and large picnic tables to hang out at.   They also had hops growing in their back yard, games of bags which we took part in, and a huge fire pit with s’mores at night.  The winery Mawby had a lot of sparkling wine and champagnes that they paired with this white fish pate and crackers that  was to die for.  On Sunday we enjoyed the sun in the backyard while relaxing with a casual bike ride around Crystal Lake in the afternoon, and then a quick lake swim.   It stayed sunny till past 7 that night and hard to leave this beautiful place to go back to the city!
