What I Did On My Summer Vacation

Pictures of my vacation trip to Saugatuck/Douglas, Michigan ... From August 7 through August 12, I enjoyed a delightful vacation visiting various places in and around Saugatuck, in southwestern Michigan, along the Lake Michigan shorline. Scroll down to see what I did and who I did it with -- some of the pictures link to bigger views or related websites, and others are just fine the way they are.
