I took my bra off and tossed on this layered linen costume that I purchased final spring and nonetheless put on so typically. It was the proper, straightforward breezy factor to throw on to discover Outdated Mission Peninsula, simply outdoors of Traverse Metropolis.
Exploring Outdated Mission Peninsula
Annually I’m at my consumer’s convention in Traverse Metropolis, I carve out a while to fulfill up with my pal Caitlin. We’ve been mates since I used to be 19 and I simply love her! Irrespective of the place we reside or how typically we get to see one another, it doesn’t look like time has handed by in any respect and we decide up the place we left off.
She doesn’t get out to the wineries typically and so I satisfied her to take a look at two, and he or she beneficial touring a lavender farm–and we each received to attempt new issues we would not usually do on our personal.
On our means up the peninsula, Caitlin talked about Mission Level–and I had by no means been there, so we drove straight as much as the tip of the peninsula to see the lighthouse, dip our toes within the water and take within the sights. So lovely and peaceable!
Harbor View Lavender Farm
I’ve by no means been to a lavender farm and this farm/nursery was small, however lovely. They’d a tiny store by the highway promoting lavender merchandise and after we toured the farm, Caitlin purchased lotion and I purchased a bag of lavender to throw in my smelly automobile.
We wrapped up our day on the peninsula by visiting two wineries together with Bowers Harbor Vineyards and Brys Property Winery and Vineyard. Bowers Harbor has been a favourite since I like onerous cider, something with a canine on a label and the customer support is all the time excellent. I noticed they’d an out of doors barn for tastings and tried watermelon onerous cider, peach onerous cider and cherry onerous cider. So. Good.
Subsequent, we drove to Brys Property. I’ve all the time loved this winery with their wine and meals pairings and their small outside house. And after I headed out to the patio to purchase a glass of wine, I noticed they added a brand new deck and bar that appeared like Joanna Gaines designed it herself. I ordered a frose and appeared out over the vineyward and felt like I used to be someplace upstate California. I felt so stylish and hip. Can’t wait to move again and day drink once more!
