Boating on Elk Lake & Torch Lake

My mom and step dad have a seasonal pass at Whitewater Township Park up near Traverse City, Michigan this summer. They go camping and boating on Elk Lake & Torch Lake. [Torch Lake is the one of the most beautiful lakes EVER!] So over the fourth of July holiday, we decided to visit for some outdoor adventures. I was nervous about how Miss A would react towards the fireworks and boating but she did great. She wasn't afraid at all. I think she really enjoyed seeing the fireworks. She was definitely curious about them at least. We did a lot of swimming because that's one of her favorite things to do. We taught her how to kick her legs in the water and she's teaching herself how to put her head under water! Scares me to death! First, she tries to lick the water and then she dunks her face into the water. I don't like her doing that because sometimes she chokes on the water... but I'm happy she's not afraid!! Crazy baby.

Anywayss-- We sure did enjoy our trip! I highly recommend Torch Lake to anyone visiting Northern Michigan! 


  1. Looks like so much fun! You sure tired Amelia out :)

    On another note--I can't believe how big/old Valerie & Bryce are. In my head I still think of them as toddlers/pre-schoolers lol :)

    1. A lot of my friends say that-- They are definitely big kids now! They're still cutie pies though... even Bryce who thinks he's cool/hott stuff :P

  2. You'll also need photos of the helm, fly bridge, companion, and mate helm seats. If the boat is on the hard, take photos of the propellers, rudder, and/or keel. Boats for sale in Cypus


Thanks for reading!
