Summer Vacation

Late June, the eastern shore of Lake Michigan near Traverse City.  This was my morning walking route.

Jolli Lodge in Leland.  We stayed in a separate cabin on the hill.

Our good friends Mary and Jeff, from Urbana, IL.  They were our neighbors in Dallas over 20 years ago.  Our children went to nursery school together, then we all moved away.

Sleeping Bear Dunes

Bill and Jeff and the giant northern white cedar

Sunset from our cottage

I was captivated by the studio of artist and naturalist Gwen Frostic.

Delicious home-cooked meals with good local wine

Me, relaxed and happy
