Boekeloo Cabin in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore


Widget not in any sidebars




This weekend, Dad, JP, and I ventured to the southern part of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore down by Platte Bay. We paid a visit to the Boekeloo Cabin – one that Dad along with volunteers from Preserve Historic Sleeping Bear, had worked on a few years back. We were pleased that it is in such great shape!

Money talks, and whereas the concept of “highest and best use” (the legal and financially feasible use that results in the highest value [read “profit”]) so often prevails, it is heartening to see an example of preservation of a historic property.

P.S., my late mother often said “Yes, money talks, but all it ever says to me is Goodbye.”

Don’t you know that cabin could tell some tales?

Nice Monday, Meegan! John Frank is perceptive as ever. We saw stuff in the same light when he and his wife and I with mine were members of the Chelsea Historical Society and Computer Club. All the best John and to all. Wish I had the legs to explore Meegan’s path of today. The rain she saw this AM is supposed to arrive here soon. Ii’ll be most welcomed.
