Trailers and sleds and snow – oh my

So, the parking lot by the public boat launch in Frankfort has not seen
such traffic since late fall. There were trailers and vehicles EVERYWHERE.

I don’t believe that I have ever seen so many “sleds” as I have today.

Get ready, set, GO!!

Round and round and round they go and jump so high into the air 😮

But enough of this and on to some real fun – shoppppppppiiiing!

The stores were full with shoppers and the restaurants were standing room only for a while.

The first window that caught my eye was that of Classens shoe store.
Much like the cartoon like windows of Pam Dow’s store “It’s the Berries”,
Classens had these cartooney over-sized cutouts of shoes and bags in the window.

just look at these, aren’t they fun?

Next was Mariah’s store – Hull’s of Frankfort

Then across the street and into the Crescent Bakery.
The one that was used in one of the scenes in the movie ‘Youth in Revolt’.

And there is Fran, filling a bag full with their ‘rustic rolls’, yummmmmmm

And that’s it for tonight. I will tell you about a new store tomorrow.

Rush Hour

There were quite a few tracks in our front yard this morning.
It seems the animals have a rush hour of their own…

I just had to add this photo this morning because the traffic here is new since yesterday.

This must have been either breakfast this morning or dinner last night.  Deer nibbling up the crab apple tree as far as they could…

Now that’s a sunrise!

Ok so it was time to take the boys to school this morning, picking up other boys along the way.

As we made our way around the corner by the old ‘Mix’s Service’ and across Betsie Bay, we spotted…..I spotted the most beautiful sunrise.
Of course with all the snow on the side of the roads, it is difficult to just pull over and take pictures. After all 15 minutes before school starts is totally rush hour here in the area 🙂

I asked Marc to do it for me and he just looked at me like I was nuts.  <—–  Don’t comment on that, heehee.

So, no pictures of that, but coming home I turned right onto 668- the shortest highway in Michigan- and drove to Elberta’s Waterfront Park.  There I could take some pics.  Nothing as spectacular as what I saw earlier, still nice though.

The clouds were pretty cool too.

Then I drove out of the park and home again.  I thought the ramshackle cottages on that road looked nice in that light this morning as well, so I took these pics to let you see :mrgreen:  It seems to me like some of them have had a little work done.



Don’t you just love the one in the foreground?  It reminds me of that house on Grace Road.

Have a good day everyone 🙂
