|A good turn-out for the season's kick-off.
|Soon the dancers are up and having a great time.
|I'm still a big fan of marinas!
Since Tessa loves to cuddle with Jim and Diana, we do our travels together in the Jeep. Saturday we're off to Traverse City for a few stops. One of the things I like best about this area is the clean, cute, artsy, foodie little villages along the lake. And then there's all the wineries, cheeseries, breweries and cideries!!
Sunday is cooler, and we're off for a drive south to Point Betsie Lighthouse. I love, love this area! Still lots of trees, but rolling hills, orchards, small inland lakes, vintage farms, and vineyards make this one of the most consistently beautiful places we've ever visited.

|Most pieces are from the period, but not original to the keepers' house. An exception is the china in the cabinet donated by the family of one of the keepers.
|Our delightful docent explains the fourth order fresnel lens.
|Up the tower.
|Happy to find lots of country barns.
|Gorgeous vintage school house.
|This unique barn at a local winery blends into the rolling hills.
|On a Centennial Farm - over 100 years in the same family.
|Last time we were here the barn was surrounded by sunflowers.
|This year it's a corn crop - not as pretty :-(

It's hard to believe when Tuesday morning arrives and it's already time to move on! We had such a great time, and will definitely be back for another visit. Bill washes the filthy windshield and fills the water tank before hooking up. Hard to say our good-bye-for-nows :-(
