In memory of Nana...Cross in the Woods

On our way to Sault St. Marie yesterday, we stopped in Indian River to visit Cross in the Woods.

This was a favorite destination for my former mother-in-law who vacationed many years on Houghton Lake.

It was a beautiful day.  We couldn't have asked for better weather.



We lit a candle in memory of Chris's mom. 


There were tears and smiles.

We miss you, Nana.

I love Indian River, but have never stopped at the cross. We will have to do that next time. I bet your MIL was smiling as you were lighting the candles. Hope you all have fun up north!
