Milestones, Legends & Michigan Summer – Best of Excursions


It’s still summer! Enjoy the Labor Day respite.


Michiganders feel a hint of melancholy during the Labor Day holiday each year. This is the time we dry dock the boats, close up cabins, and buy back-to-school supplies. It is also the last big blowout of the summer and picnics, waterskiing, tubing, hiking and camping excursions abound.


Milestones, Legends and Summer…

But for those in recovery, looking ahead to autumn and winter can also bring on the blues. It’s important to remember the milestones you have achieved. And take a moment to reflect on how far you have come. And of course, look back on this summer of Michigan fun. We present three great beach reads from Lotta Dann, Jenny Selent and Marilyn Spiller.
