Vol XIX – #128 – There ARE Other Places Beside Fishtown

(Report by Jim) I see so many shots of Fishtown that I know it has most of the love. I personally have an affinity for it, but I thought today I would show a little love for East Leland, Omena, and Northport. Some more jewels on the peninsula.   

Vol XIX – #127 – Gulls on a Hot Tin Roof

(Report by Jim) Dad and I had a nice meeting with the Noontiders in Burdicksville south of Glen Arbor today to talk about the Leland Report and share some of our photos. We were very happy to share this with their group. On the way back, we caught some seagulls lollygagging on a barn roof. Last night, I stayed out… Read more »

Vol XIX – #126 – Creatures Great and Small

A storm rolled through Leland yesterday and I must have headed in the wrong direction because the images I saw over the harbor were great. But I always go to the harbor, so I headed out to East Leland instead. Earlier today, I zoomed in on my Mom’s Daisy garden and found a hitchhiker.  

Vol XIX – #124 – Sunday Birthday

(Report by Jim) Town is crowded if you didn’t notice (if you are here and didn’t notice, then you didn’t leave the house). I decided not to even try to find space downtown and just parked the car at the top of the hill going north (glad I did, turning onto Main St was a lesson in futility). The drone… Read more »

Vol XIX – #93 – Tuesday Early Rain

(Report by Jim) Between rain showers today, I took the drone up over my friend’s property on the north end of Lake Leelanau. It’s nice knowing people here like the Marshalls that have always appreciated being outdoors. People who have a house to stay in, but still would stay in a tent or a camper on the lake. I got… Read more »

Vol XIX – #92 – Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

(Report by Jim) Travel day up to Leland yesterday. I wanted to get here earlier in the evening, but fate has a way of ruining things for me. I had errands to run in the morning and when I went to put my registration sticker on my trailer plate, I found someone had stolen the plate. I spend over an… Read more »
