Vol XVI # 062 – Meggen’s Monday

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.

Vol XVI # 061 – Wine Tasting Day

Vol XVI # 047 – Looks Nice, But Doesn’t 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.
