What I Did On My Summer Vacation, Michigan Edition July 28, 2008

Holland, MI this time of year is a very nice place to visit. While my family and I were there, the temperature ranged from the high 70s to the low 80s, with minimal humidity and a pleasant breeze. And the water, while a bit chilly, was clear and clean. Too bad the winters can be brutal in that area. But I won’t be there in the winter, so who cares?

Oh, and if your daughter REALLY NEEDS her pink My Little Pony purse, and you go to the car to bring it back to the hotel room, try not to encounter drunken rednecks. Just sayin’.

Anyway, here is Lake Michigan, as seen from Tunnel Park, so named because a tunnel dug through the sand dunes is one of the ways to get to the beach.

Then, we went to a local Dutch Village and Windmill Island. Apparently, they make their own cheese there.

Here is the Windmill Island:

And finally (for now), proof that Holland State Park became teh sexxier  for at least a few hours last week [REDACTED]

Eddie, those shoes are just as gay here as they were over at DPUD.

2. Michael - July 29, 2008

No, actually, I think those shoes have gotten more gay.

try not to encounter drunken rednecks.

In western Michigan? Impossible. Also, I’d be curious to know how far you had to chase the color-blind gay dude to snag his shoes?

4. eddiebear - July 29, 2008

^3.2 miles, to be precise.

My Little Pony: better than Strawberry Shortcake or Hello Kitty, but not much…..I, too, was unaware that MI had rednecks. Do they have BBQ?

Bwahahahaha! Snort. Giggle.

5: my daughter also has a Hello Kitty backpack and a Strawberry Shortcake sleeping bag. Thankfully, we didn’t need to bring those.

Eddiebear….have you ever considered having your wife pick out your clothes?

(Nice pix by the way).

9. eddiebear - July 29, 2008

^When she buys stuff for me (except for some awesome Hawaiian shirts), she tries to dress me like her dad.

Nobody wants to see our toes or hairy man-feet.

Excuse me… I like toes and hairy man-feet.

Flip-flops are way cool.

Super casual. Unapologetic.

Easy to get off… fast.

12. eddiebear - July 29, 2008

^and I use them around the house when I have to go to the car to retrieve something, or to take out the trash.

13. Retired Geezer - July 29, 2008

Am I the only old dude that still calls flip-flops, Thongs?

Wouldn’t a Reverse Pleat cut your knees?

I always wear the same thing, Camo shorts or pants and Hawaiian shirt.

Thanks for sharing the pics, Eddie…

and submitting yourself to our IB Fashion Police.

15. eddiebear - July 29, 2008

^If awesomeness is a crime, then let me plead guilty.

16. Cathy - July 29, 2008

Geezer, for me the problem with calling flip-flops thongs

is this.

*maybe NSFW*marginal*

17. daveintexas - July 29, 2008

Hey now, this stuff is gold. And I’m just giving it away.

The Crocs make me viscerally angry.

Try this:

1) Place your Crocs in an empty, clean drywall bucket
2) Fill with fresh mortar mix and allow mixture to harden
3) Hurl into the ocean

19. geoff - July 29, 2008

Try this:

And removing one’s feet first is optional?

20. daveintexas - July 29, 2008

tonight the crocs sleep with the fishes

21. Blackiswhite, Imperial Agent Provocateur - July 29, 2008

Next time take a trip to Frankenmuth, MI, Eddie, and get yerself some recycled chicken.

22. sandy burger - July 29, 2008

Am I the only old dude that still calls flip-flops, Thongs?

It doesn’t help matters that you always wink after saying it.

23. Cathy - July 29, 2008

What you you get when you follow Lauraw’s directions @ #18?

… a croc of Crocs.

24. mesablue - July 29, 2008

Next time take a trip to Frankenmuth

Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

It’s freaking filled with Lutherans.

25. Blackiswhite, Imperial Agent Provocateur - July 29, 2008

It’s freaking filled with Lutherans.

Think of it as a German Twinkie. With recycled fried chicken.
