Today was a day trip. I am not sure when the last time was that I took a day trip anywhere.
Today’s pick was New Buffalo Michigan. It is a short drive, just long enough to go for a few hours. This trip was a little more meaningful to me. I spent so much of my childhood at my grandmother’s house and at the beach in New Buffalo.
It was so nice to be able to share to explore the places that were so meaningful to me. These places and my family who lived in New Buffalo helped shape me. My grandparents continue to be strong influences in my life. I love seeing how things have changed, but also miss the simplicity of what it was before all of condos and additions were made along the beachfront.
The past few times, I have been there, were for my grandmother’s funeral and then her sister’s. This was so meaningful to just go and reminisce about the beautiful parts of childhood. I am so grateful to be able to share that part of me with someone who wanted to know more.
I look forward to more day trips.
