Vol XV #215 – A Blustery Day

  A dark and windy beginning along with showers… ugh  Not so for Elijah Allen above.  I nearly got blown away by a gust of wind on Van’s Beach.  40 years ago, Oct. ’75, on a much nicer day than today I took the picture below.  Today it’s just an open field barren of structures. My apologies to Dave, I’m not focusing today

Vol XV #213 – Cool, Quiet and Calm

A very nice morning, quiet and calm at Van’s Beach.  Surveyors determining the lake level, taking advantage of the flatness.  Beautiful Fall color muted a bit by the light overcast.  Fishtown is closing down with the exception of Reflections, Leif’s Tile Shop and Carlson’s Fish Shanty.

Vol XV #210 – Fall Frenzy in Greater Downtown Leland

A few sprinkles left over from the overnight rain greeted the sunrise.  Small pockets of blue provided an occasional splash of sunshine.  It was an mostly cloudy and breezy day.  Fishtown and Greater Downtown Leland were crowded with Fall Frenzy people.

Vol XV #206 – Not as Nice as Yesterday

Not as nice as yesterday, but not the worst.  Another one of those “little bit of everything” days with some raindrops in the AM, sunshine at noon and overcast to mostly cloudy later.  Leelanau County is reaching peak color this weekend with temperatures in the mid fifties, sunshine Thursday thru Saturday. Possible showers Saturday PM.  

Vol XV #204 – Quiet On the Set… This is a Take!

Another everything you can think of day with dark drizzly clouds at sunrise with an occasional snowflake.  The dark clouds moved slowly to the east with puffy whites moving in with a background of blue. Early afternoon we toured the Lime Lake, Maple City area looking for color and found a few nice spots, but the peak is still a week away.
