nseasonably cold! 49 degrees at sunrise and no more than 55 all day. But, it was sunny and busy with Leelanau County Vets filling up the charters and having a fish fry at the dock.

Later, I walked the whole Houdek Dunes trail looking for Pink Lady Slippers. I didn’t have any trouble finding hundreds of them all along the trail. Get out there while they are still at peak! Houdek Dunes is on M-22 5 miles north of Leland before you get to Happy Hour Tavern.

Warm it up a little up there Mr B. Coming up in about three weeks for some serious beach time.

I like all the pix, but the trail shot is appealing.
