A Drive through Frankfort

Today the weather could not have been better. Here at the Wayfarer, we had a nice, cool breeze off Lake Michigan. Temperatures were in the low 80’s   purrrfect!

Being involved in a covert operation for an event this week, (no I cannot tell you what this was about or I’ll have to shoot you) I had to go into town and took the opportunity to bring back some pictures of what’s going on in Frankfort during the holiday week. I also have pictures of the clouds at sunset.

The carnival is in town.  It looks pretty and colorful.  They have “put down stakes” across the street from the Bayview Grille.  It smelled like cotton candy and popcorn.

Loading the Ferris Wheel

not much going on yet, the rides just opened this afternoon…

I was on the way home, crossing the bridge across Betsie Bay, when I saw the beautiful sky.
But first a picture of the train that’s located in the park in Elberta, where the Thursday market is held.
They painted the train – it looks wonderful

Easter Sunday in Benzie County

It was a nice, a very nice day in Benzie County.   I lollygagged in my comfy bed until the sun made me get up and of course the hooting and hollering downstairs.  The night before I had hidden the usual Easter eggs – the boys expect it and I do it.  So there was the big Easter egg hunt going on.

We spend most of the day at Mike’s mom’s house with his sisters and their kids.  And then, on my way home, I went out of my way to get some pictures for you.

See, it is quiet still. Not many guests here yet; a lot of locals are still on vacation as well. The weather is and has been positively spectacular in the last few weeks.  If this is a sign of things to come this summer…

The beach is in sight

Looking left toward the Elberta dunes. I never tire of these views.

Some fishing going on around the Frankfort Lighthouse

One lonely fishing boat in the harbor heading out

Then I drove to the Elberta look-out

Two adventurers strolling along the Elberta pier.

And the last picture is of Betsie Lake

I hope everyone had a peaceful and  Happy Easter…
