I went to visit my family in Indiana a few weeks ago, and my mom and I took an impromptu trip to Holland, Michigan, for the weekend (that’s her there, looking all seaworthy in front of the lighthouse). It was a lot of fun, and I got great shots of the countryside, some of the local landmarks, and a few quirky things we found along the way. The first was this beautiful, old, Dutch windmill on the middle of the little island. It was a stormy out, and we ended up being there right after it closed, so there was no one around. We also (in our attempt to find lake Michigan) stumbled across this huge, red, historical lighthouse. It was a pretty awesome sight against the beautiful lake. On the way home, we drove past a WalMart which was clearly the happening place on Friday night for the local Amish community. And last but not least, we happened upon a request for a prom date, written in sticky foam letters, on a stop sign. I hope she said yes!
