Livin' out here on "The Leelanau": The Road Wearier 1978. The Grand Traverse Lighthouse

I take a bicycle ride out the the Grand Traverse Lighthouse quite often. Its located at the very tip of the Leelanau Peninsula, in the Leelanau State Park. The lighthouse is administered by a non profit group under a lease with the Sate of Michigan.



For reference, here's a picture that I've posted before. Its the entrance to my subdivision. The road heading toward the top of the picture is due north. That's…

Blue and white

I stepped out of the building and took about 13 steps. Something stopped me and told me to look up. Through the humid air, I looked toward a patch of blue sky. It

was splattered with the white wings of birds. They were flying high,

although the variation in size told me they were at different heights. I

the beauty of the two colors multiplying the effect of…

Livin' out here on "The Leelanau": Off the road and on the patio!

Sometimes we all just need to kick back....take a little respite from our travels and travails.

Livin' out here on "The Leelanau": The Road Wearier 1978. Down the Old Plank Road!
