Elberta Beach Lookout

Mike and I had a fun evening out.
The boys are gone for the next two days visiting their girlfriends in Petoskey –
we took the opportunity to sneak out of the Wayfarer,
have a drink somewhere and dinner at the Mayfair Restaurant.
Frankfort was buzzing with summer guests.  The restaurants were full.
We couldn’t get to the bar at Dinghy’s and decided to walk up to the Villa Marine for a cold beer.
After dinner, the obligatory drive to the beach. Since we where in Elberta already, we drove up to the lookout…

There you have it – Beautiful Frankfort-Elberta

Stormy Weather

This was a day for hot chocolate (with rum) and comfort foods – not that it’s cold.  The winds are howling, blowing, sending rain. A lot of rain.

I love fall, most of you know that.  This is a very welcome event, as today the first, big storm of the season started.  It is widespread and it seems, dare I say it, that we are among the very lucky for not having any power problems.
