Douglas / Saugatuck Michigan

My wife has been home for the last 7 weeks covering from a full knee replacement.  Her progress has been amazing to watch.  With today being her first day back to work, my friend offered up his weekend getaway home in Douglas, MI.   Wanting to miss any traffic, we left Friday mid-morning for the 2+ hour drive.  The weather held out and waited to rain after we arrived.  The weekend was very low key.  Staying at Paul’s throws one off for a little while as there is no cable TV.  However he does have Netflix and wireless throughout the 3 level 2 bedroom home.  To simplify the weekend (at keep costs down) we made a Wal-mart run in Benton Harbor. Our only outing of the weekend was a brewery tour of New Holland Brewing Company in Holland, MI.  The tour was fun although all of the standing wore on Abigail’s leg.  While most all of our eating was done at the house, we did go out to eat at our favorite place in Douglas, the Wild Dog Grille.  The food is great along with the modern setting matched with African animal photos and stuffed game heads. We both has Tilapia fish tacos.

I was happy to have a relaxing weekend with Abigail.  The view from Paul’s place adds to a sense of peace.  Both mornings there were 4-5 deer grazing right next to the house.
