Friday Funday!

We spent a long Fourth of July weekend in Southwest Michigan for a family wedding. We spent the Fourth on the beach, no better pace to be. Friday followed with lots of fun. You know it is a funday when the Hummer limo pulls up before noon!

We had a fun-filled day planned to celebrate the bride-to-be on the day before her wedding on the beach. First stop, Round Barn Winery. The property is gorgeous, as are the buildings.

You can do a tasting or grab a bottle and sit outside and enjoy the views overlooking the grapevines. There is a huge list of wines to select from as well as rum, vodka, bourbon and aperitif, all made from grapes. The black walnut creme was amazing!

They also brew beer, their Grape Expectations was a favorite, flavored with grapes of course.

Next stop, South Haven, and a visit to The Idler. The boat is permanently docked on the river. The upper deck has great river views, and the downstairs is spectacular with all the woodwork. I am sure it was a beauty in its prime, it’s taken a beaten over the years.

A short walk over the river to our last stop, a late lunch at Captain Lou’s. Lou’s is a great (mostly) outdoor bar on the river.  Perfect spot for the beautiful weather. The bartender was a trooper too.

A nice limo ride home, with lots of dancing in our seats. A great day for a great lady!

Bride to Be

And to the happy couple, and picturesque wedding on the beach. Congratulations and wishing you many years of happiness.

    What a great time! I was in South Haven last July with my Mom and Hannah – such a pretty place! I am curious about the grapes in the beer though!
