Last year, Petra and I took part in a sort of mini vacation with some friends in an old vintage historic hotel on Lake Michigan. This year, it was decided to rent the next door house called “The House of Eleven Gables” (owned by the historic hotel) so that we could make as much noise as we wanted. Being a large group of the world’s loudest, fastest and most prolific talkers, our collective output could wake the dead (and by dead, I mean the rest of the occupants in the old hotel).

And even more PHOTOS from Susan’s iPhone.
This proved to be a very good idea. The weekend was filled with drinking, playing music, singing, taking photos and long walks along the frozen beach, making a huge meal for all 16 people and, in general, relaxing around the cozy fireplace.
By the end of the 2 and a half days, we were all one big happy family!
