I love how Anne (with and E) Shirley, from Green Gables always gave fancy names to all the beautiful places she loved.
Someday I will have to post some of our honey moon pictures of Prince Edward Island. Yes the BG actually agreed to take me there on our honeymoon to visit all of the Anne of Green Gables haunts. What a guy! We spent almost 2 weeks on the island.
So I am borrowing an Anne-ism to describe the echanted place we visited this Saturday.
It really was the Lake of Shining Waters.
We went to visit Buzz and Janie in Ann Arbor. Buzz is one of the BG’s old University of Michigan professors. Buzz was also very good friends of Patience and Minate’s father Nate. Buzz and Janie try to get together with us and the girls at least once a year so that they can see the kids.
This amazing spot is in Ann Arbor but the BG and I had never even heard of it. They try to keep it that way I think. You have to be a member to get in. It is on the property of an old farm house. Buzz said that it was started in the 1930’s by the farm family that owned the land, as a get-away for the Detroit auto workers.
You had to drive into the driveway of the farm house and down a little lane surrounded by corn on both sides.
There were two lakes, wooded campsites, and CORNFIELDS all around you. It was such a romantic spot. I fell in love!
We enjoyed the day very very much!
Later Gators! Melissa
