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 #205 – Meggen’s Monday

A perfect fall day, complete with wind blowing leaves every which way, and not too cold. It started out with a pre-dawn line-up of Venus, Jupiter, and Mars. At sunset last night, the freighter Great Lakes Trader and tug Joyce L. VanEnkevort moved slowly through the Manitou Passage. Same place, 24 hours earlier – windy, wavy, and chilly, with a hundred… Read more »

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.          

Vol XV #203 – Another Eclectic October Day

Another one of those days that had everything Mother Nature could bring.  Deep dark clouds with pockets of blue and billowing whites.  Drizzle at times with periods of snow.  Temperature in the forties with wind gusts in the twenties.  Leelanau County color is shown on TV at 50% with the peak predicted next weekend.       

Vol XV #201 – Looking For Color in all the Right Places

  The morning began with incredible cloud formations to the east over Lake Leelanau.  The ever changing sky continued all day.  This weekend the “Peepers” should be rewarded with color that gets better as the day gets longer.  

Vol XV #184 – Meggen’s Monday

The super moon did, in fact, emerge from behind the cloud cover last night. I didn’t see the full eclipse, but caught it during the “second half.” We’ve been having a run of incredibly beautiful days, both with clear skies and otherwise… still thoroughly enjoyable. Later, the clouds began to obscure the moon again. Lake Leelanau, Sunday. Good Harbor Bay, Saturday…. Read more »

Vol XV #181 – The Grapes of Chateau Fontaine

Another special moment as the sun rises over Van’s Beach.  I think it’s obvious that this is where the day begins for Biscuit and Me, next stop… Fishtown.  A special treat today was our journey through the vineyards of Chateau Fontaine.  

Vol XV #173 – Barns and Stuff on a Hot September Day

Biscuit and I decided to wander out into the county and look for photo opportunities outside of Fishtown.  I’ve photographed these barns many times, but.  Anyway, returning to town I spotted this ’75/’77 IH Scout parked by the bridge.  I had one just like it, roll bar and all.  Brought back a lot of Leland memories.  Jim Burnham could share a… Read more »
