Last Thursday night, we drove north with Leslie and Larry, for our annual 4th of July trip to northern Michigan. The weather has been spectacular, kindly doing all the raining after dark, dappled sunlight coming through the trees every day. Temperatures have been 75-80 degrees, although today is just a bit cooler.
The only drawback is that I have had a cold the whole time, and even though I wore a mask in the car on the way up, I managed to pass it on to Larry. He's on Day 2, which I can attest is less than pleasant.
Otherwise, we have had a lovely time reading, relaxing, golfing, shopping, and enjoying the annual events in Harbor Springs for the 4th of July: art show, parade, and fireworks.
This afternoon, I am enjoying a Tigers' game, especially as it appears they may win. The others are golfing, and later we head into Petoskey to Bayfront Park ball field to watch some softball with a backdrop of Little Traverse Bay.
I may have spoken too soon about the Tigers.
One of my favorite things to take pictures of is flowers, and Harbor Springs is lousy with 'em.
And I feel sure I have posted this before, but the sky in this shot of the Ephraim Shay house is too beautiful not to include...
