Vol XVII – #317 – Meggen’s Monday

Blue skies today, though it was a mere 18 degrees at sun-up. Today’s photographs are from Saturday, when JP and I went to Empire and watched as icebergs drifted by with the current, far out in the lake beyond the shoreline ice. We also checked out the Dune Climb, where a handful of people were taking advantage of the great conditions…. Read more »

Vol XVII – #316 – Which Way is the Beach ?

Days are gradually getting longer, and many deer congregate along these country roads at sunrise and sunset, so keep eyes out for them. One surprised us yesterday by repeatedly standing… Read more »

Vol XVII – #309 – Super Bowl Sunday

It’s February and Winter is going to be around for another month and a half. We already have had over 100 inches fall and could easily have a 100 more. What we thankful for is that the Leelanau County Road Commission does a fantastic job of keeping our roads clean. Not only the main roads, but all the roads. Hats… Read more »
