The day began as forecasted… Scattered showers and windy overnight, cloudy and calm early morning. 3:00 p.m. it poured, 3:45 pockets of sunshine. Interesting clouds.
Happy Memorial Day! Today we gratefully remember those who served, and deeply honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Leland town is hopping with activity. Across the Manitou Passage, North Manitou Island was also a beautiful place to be. Lilacs there are in full bloom.

The day began with beautiful blue skies and puffy white clouds and around noon, dark clouds started moving in from the southwest and a sprinkle or two happened. Other than that it was a beautiful Sunday in May. Fishtown was filled to capacity with weekend visitors, places to park… none.

Overnight temperatures were below freezing for most of the Upper/Lower. Cherry blossoms are the main concern when it drops to below 30 degrees. Last year, grapes took the hit. The forecast is… nicer days are on the way. It looks nice and is starting to feel nice.

Brrr… Winter returned with wind out of the north and near freezing temperatures with snow showers. The sky opened up around noon and turned a beautiful blue. Fishtown looked picture postcard good except there were no visitors. Sunday afternoon on a sun shinny day in May and there ain’t nobody there.
