If you are a northern Michigan girl in the summer, this is the scene you long to see after a long winter in the suburbs. A sandy cut in the landscape that leads to a public beach. Ahead lies swimming, sunbathing, picnics, beach walks, Petoskey stone searches and ever-changing sunsets. This is where we northern Michigan girls live in the summertime...on the shores of Lake Michigan.
My favorite sandwich to take on a picnic?
Crusty French bread spread with softened cream cheese. Press chopped green olives into the cream cheese. Layer thin sliced turkey, slices of tomato and fresh spinach onto bread. Wrap in Saran Wrap/cling wrap and take to the beach (or outdoor concert!)
