In the paper!

The magazine, Pentwater: This Week, will be publishing my story! Check it out.

Dear Oceana's Herald Journal,

This summer my family and I had the opportunity to have our photos taken at the top of the Zugspitze (Germany's tallest mountain). The thing that makes this photo so special is that 3 of us randomly brought our Pentwater sweatshirts to keep us warm. While we had a good laugh about this, we had several people stop and ask us where this Pentwater was and why we all had the same sweatshirts on. We were happy to tell them that we visit every summer and one of the must-dos is to purchase a sweatshirt from Hancock St. And to think all these conversations took place on the very top of Germany!
The people in the photo (from left to right) are Brad Lowe (my husband), Suzi Baker and Fritz Baker (my parents). We have been coming to Pentwater every year for my entire life. It is our piece of 'heaven on earth'. Pentwater runs as deep as my grandmother (Mariam Baker, 88 years old) who has been coming since she was 2 years old. I have now passed the tradition on to my own family, so much in fact that we are about to make the international trip for the second year in a row from Stuttgart, Germany. Whoever would have thought one's favorite childhood and adult memories all take place in one tiny town? We love you, Pentwater!
