My parents paid for myself and my husband to come visit them in Michigan, and to go to Traverse City together. It’s been really nice so far. Will be going back home tomorrow though, unfortunately.
We ate at a lot of lovely places; Xylo Bistro, the Omelette Shoppe, Harringtons by the Bay, and North Peak Brewing Company. I forgot to take photos at Harringtons, though.

A shot of the old building next to one that is starting to be renovated; you can see the difference in the windows.

I believe this is one of the surviving villas.
Despite the dilapidated appearance, the overgrowth of plants makes it seem almost charming.
I have to confess that I mostly like this because it reminds me of a Georgian Silent Hill setting
I envy the teenagers who live around here and can break into the old buildings and scare themselves at their leisure.
