Sparky wants to keep typing Bar Harbor, ME for the weather! We're in South Haven for six nights, but today the dynamic duos of Ritchie and Nick, and Sparky and Eldo decided to take in a festival in Bangor, MI --I almost typed Bangor, ME...geesh! Eldo isn't buying any of that. He's content to be back in the midwest, and actually, so is Sparky....It's just old habits die hard, right?
At any rate, there was just one problem...the literature was incorrect and there WASN'T any festival in Bangor until NEXT month, at least not according to the web. But there was supposed to be some kind of harvest festival in Saugatuck--the 9th annual Fall Heritage Festival....So we went looking for it...
And we never found it. Maybe we had the wrong year? But we had a great time. It brought back great memories for Sparky. Sparky and her girls used to go to Saugatuck on a regular basis...We'd eat a snack at the Coral Gables, we'd walk up and down the marina, reading all the yacht names, we'd peruse all the shops...There used to be a Post Office little shop that sold the cutest stationery, cards, and great post-it notes. It's gone. There used to be a wonderful poster store on the main drag...It's gone...BUT--Kilwinn's the Michigan fudge and ice cream shop is going great guns as always...It's doing so well in Saugatuck, there are TWO Kilwinn's on the same street in town! Decisions, decisions, decisions---fudge or ice cream? Ice cream or fudge? Or both?!
|Yep, old guys rule! But old gals rule the roost!|
People don't think anything of having their pets in the stores here, owners included, which is fine if you don't have allergies! Sparky is allergic to cats, so she didn't linger long in this store....Some kind of southwest decor store with a terrific selection of comfortable European shoes ..Sparky picked up one cute pair and promptly put them down...$175.00!
