lr-08-30-2016

The age of the visitors to Leland has changed as the families with school age children are back at home and the older generations are on the move. It’s amazing how many arrive on 2 wheels decked out in full leather.   I used to have a motorcycle… rode it here in the Leelanau wearing shorts, tee shirt, tennis shoes –… Read more »
