Vol XVII – #008 – Some More April Weather

Leelanau County was the only county excluded from the snow attack this morning on national news. At the moment, the western Michigan shoreline is the only rain/snow free zone in the state.  Wind is blowing 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40. Tomorrow and Saturday supposed to be sunny with temperature warming.      

Vol XVI – #222 – A Day To Reflect Upon

Another record breaking day, something to reflect upon.  Only two shops open, Tug Stuff and Leif Sporck’s Tile Shop.  You would think more shops would be open on such a nice summer day.   The 2017 Leland Report Calendar is now shipping! New low price!  Look for the Book and Calendar Bundle here:  http://www.artistasylum.com/specialty-items/e5b7837c1  

Vol XVI – #127 – One of Those Days

One of those days that’s just like so many of the other days… On the warm side with clear skies and light wind off Big Blue. The old courthouse and jail property has been cleaned up and is ready for a development.  Eight nice sized lots for sale.  Not sure, but I remember that the original proposal had 17 or 18… Read more »

Vol XVI – #117 – Chicago to Mac… Passing Through

  A cloudy and on the warm and humid side get-up.  Thunderstorms south of us causing a lot turmoil with the Mac Race overnight.  Best I could muster up with my telephoto lens is the picture below.  Clouds ruled most of the day with spurts of sunshine here and there. Town was really crowded.       

Vol XVI – #116 – A 5K Saturday

What a great day it turned out to be for whatever you wanted to do, especially running a 5K race.  Congratulations to Nick Amato, winner.   One of the DeVos family cruisers above, anchored out in front of Sleeping Bear Point.   Van’s Beach looking like a picture postcard.  Forecast for tomorrow… scattered thunderstorms.      

Vol XVI – #115 – A Fishtown Friday

Fishtown is a busy place this afternoon in preparation of the 5K race tomorrow.  Tonight the Old Art Building is hosting the 24th Art Leelanau, featuring over 100 artists.      

Vol XVI – #114 – A Rainy Fishtown Day

Fishtown never shuts down, especially on a rainy day.  And like all rainy days, it stops and the sun comes out.  At least 6 people asked if it was alright if they petted Biscuit and of course my response, yes, but you have to have your picture with him.  This happens every day.  Below, one of the guys saw me in the parking… Read more »
