Ice creams from a Michigan summer

When I hear the words “Whippy Dip“, I think summer in Silver Lake, near the cottage we rent overlooking Lake Michigan. I love the ice cream – it’s got excellent soft-server – and the on-site playground is a hit with my daughter. I found that going Friday and Saturday night means a long wait for all the people enjoying the dunes, but the other nights of the week, the lines are much shorter.

So I present a remembrance of Summertime 2013 ice cream.

My default ice cream, the twist. The ice cream is in focus, even if my picture isn’t:

I decided to go healthy and have a strwaberry sundae. Probably added a year to my life by making that choice:

And as a bonus ice cream shot, here is one from the Pentwater Dari Creme, after a fantastic dinner from Bortell’s near Bass Lake. May I present the “Black Forest Sundae”:
