Vol XV #166 – A Mostly Cloudy Day, But What Clouds They Were

The morning began with temperatures in the lower 60’s, Rain moving in from the west with incredible cloud formations. The rain kind of put the damper on my wife’s golf, she only got to play one hole.  The rain moved on and the sky continued to entertain us with wonderful formations.       

Vol XV #165 – Van’s Beach, Riviera of the Mid-West

The morning began with temperatures in the lower 60’s, Partly Cloudy skies, a perfect Leelanau beginning.  By mid afternoon, blue sky, brilliant sunshine.  What kind of a day is it?  It’s perfect Leelanau Day.  I put the hard top back on the Jeep with sadness, the morning temperatures will be getting lower as we navigate toward Fall and I don’t want… Read more »

Vol XV #161 – Great Morning to Go Fishing

Vol XV #159 – Fishtown in the Rain

  I heard someone say that last night’s T-Storm dumped 3+ inches on the Land of Delight last night. Below, this Cadillac ATS, which Jim Burnham says stands for “A Tiny Sedan” attracted my attention because it’s been parked in this “Compact Only” slot for a couple of days.  Cars park on the other side of the entrance road and the… Read more »
