Here They Come
Updated: Sep 23
MY EXCITEMENT IS MOUNTING knowing my youngest son David and his family will soon arrive for a four-day late summer retreat in my neck of the woods.
It’s been since November when we last got together in Denver for a family outing. Hosted then by Rob and Megan (see photo).
The Adams Family https://helloadamsfamily.com/ has rented a house in Glen Arbor for three nights and then I will host them for Sunday night at Lake Bluff Preserve in Frankfort. A seafood and steak extravaganza is in the plan topped off by s’mores made fresh at one of our bluff fire pits. https://www.m22lakeshoretrail.com/lakebluffpreserve.
We will be playing Arcadia Bluffs https://arcadiabluffs.com/ during the day and will use the evening to lick our battle scars from the round with the help of great smoked whitefish pate from Frankfort’s Port City Smokehouse https://portcitysmokehouse.com/ joined by sparkling wines from St. Ambrose Cellars in Honor https://www.stambrose-mead-wine.com/ .
I supplied David with a list of eight of my favorite attractions that should be taken in as they traverse up and down the northern corridor of the iconic M-22 scenic highway. I was amazed that most of them involved libations of some repute.
Yes, we are tourists in our own town.
