The first day of summer is just as it should be… warm, sunny, beautiful in every way.
A overcast but beautiful beginning to a very nice day. It was a perfect day to begin teaching sailing at the Leland Yacht Club. The sailing class was small but in a week or two there will be a lot more students. A Fishtown Story: As usual Biscuit gets a lot of attention in Fishtown, even from those who have… Read more »

The Wildflower Rescue team will be on hand this weekend at the Village Green with a lot of Trillium for sale. Both Upper and Northern Lower peninsulas are under an extreme fire watch and No Burn Rule is in effect. Some rain is expected this week.
We celebrated Mother’s Day at the Riverside Inn. It turned out to be a beautiful day in the Leelanau.
