XVIII – #411 – The Floating Leland Reporters

(Report by Jim) Chilly this morning, but I finally managed to take my constitutional morning Summer swim. Water temps on the Lake Michigan shoreline are 50-55F, so it was probably little higher on the little lake. Still COLD. But, sometimes you need a little shock to the system. Did a little drone flight over Lake Leelanau and then around Horn… Read more »

Vol XVIII – #376 – On the Money on Onomonee

(Report by Jim) A cold, dreary day today so here are some shots from the sunset last night. I had the drone up about 330′, the lake was so calm, you could see the reflections of the trees. This was up at Onomonee Road Beach, which we used to call “Sunset Beach”. It didn’t disappoint!
