My family has been vacationing in Michiana for one week in August every year since I was very little. We spend most of our time on the beach reading and searching for beach treasures. It is the most relaxing week of summer and I look forward to it every year. It will always hold a place in my heart and I hope in the future to continue this tradition when I start my own family.

The beautiful town of Tobermory (house to the only whisky distillery on the island) was a favourite! But we also enjoyed smaller less touristic areas such as the Isle of Mull Weavers yarn factory and the lovely Isle of Mull cheese farm…

I love this fictional town, “where everybody fits in”! As a Canadian I’m so proud of this gem. I live in a small rural town, but not as fun filled or interesting as these characters & this town! If you watch it, you’ll get this map, as I only had room to add icons from a few of my favourite episodes. There’s no real direction or compass “rose” pun intended, but just wandering through this town would prove interesting! Digitally illustrated with love! and watch out for the poison oak!
