day trippin




and I'm thinking of you...

we recently journeyed up
north in the mitten state
to visit family in Traverse City
and we had a lovely reunion...





we took a couple day trips
to visit the vineyards...
of course we did...
we're Italians... ya know






and the views are fantastic...
so I thought you might like to take a peek..






our view at brunch below





and darling little shops..




in Leland





and since we were there we had to 
visit 
Fish Town





which is now filled with
little shops, so quaint
on the waterfront... 










it was a lovely trip and
we will be back, looking
to relocate in that gorgeous area...


and... I will be posting again soon...
I have September pages to show you
as well as new work 
so lots to see...

hope you are enjoying your autumn or spring
wherever you may be...

what a nice trip under those gorgeous blue skies and fluffy clouds

Fish town certainly does look quaint as does the entire area...exciting to be planning a change of residence!

I just popped over from Art Propelled......and imagine my surprise.......as a Michigander, I am VERY familiar with this location....all of you lusting for it must remember it is very very cold and remote in our winter!!! That said, it's one of the most magical places on earth for me......it is sacred land you see.......

Thanks for the window to this beautiful spot. Some of these photos remind me of Maine.

I love Traverse City...we were there last August and stayed in a vineyard and B&B The Grey Hare! Beautiful landscapes! Peace, Mary Helen

So pretty, and the waterfront shops look so cool! I love that kind of place!

I had just dropped by to tell you how much I liked taking day trips with you, when my electricity was knocked out by a storm that passed through Kansas. That was yesterday. Getting back online after my computer woes didn't help much!

Although Fish Town looks like a tourist trap, it is certainly a fun way to spend a day. I can only imagine how much there was to see there. The idea of buying real cheese would have me running to THAT store.

I really enjoyed the visit and hope you find your ideal place soon. I know how stressful moving can get.

Places like these, with the clouds just hanging in the sky and shades of blue everywhere. Places like these with the boardwalk paths and the hand-painted signs.
Places like these are where artists like you belong.

PS: you asked me about my format, although I like the way it looks when you first arrive at my blog, some people didn't like the change. But for newer readers, it is easier to look through my blog for things they may have missed. I don't know if you could keep your nature sounds, but you might be able to. Other than that, it is very simple to use. Hope that helps :)

Hi, I love the photos.

I was in Brighton last week for the library book sale and frequently spend time at Sugar Loaf (a former ski resort) near Good Harbor Bay in the Leelanau Peninsula.

I am always so pleased to find other bloggers near me in southern Michigan,

xoxo
