The other day I went into town – it was positively deserted. Only one other car besides mine was there
And then I saw the new brewery
going up/ being built between the Furniture Store and the Garden Theater.
Lots of new and exciting things are going on in Frankfort and Elberta and they all have to do with alcohol, heehee.
Down where the Kilwin’s store and Dinghy’s are, there will be a wine bar. I don’t have details on either of these two new businesses, but I am planning on doing some sleuthing this coming week
Marc and Braden went on a duck hunting adventure yesterday morning. They got a duck ( I forgot to take a picture of it) . It had teeth. Very funny, it reminded me of an angry Daffy Duck, actually.
Around 11 o’clock my phone rang. Marc called to hitch a ride home. “Where” did I ask “is Braden with the boat?” “Oh,” Marc answered, “he is rowing around Betsie Bay in search of a way to get into Elberta”.
I must admit that this did not make any kind of sense to me. I left the house and drove to the railroad bridge to give Marc a ride to the house. He wanted to pick up the big, red truck to then be able to tow the boat to where it belonged – Braden’s Uncle’s yard.
Suddenly things were crystal clear: They had rowed the Betsie River to under the railroad bridge when they ran out of water. Marc in the front of the boat weighed the boat down right into the mud. So Braden “kicked” Marc out and took the boat all the way down to East Shore Marina and then across towards the Cabbage Shed and into Elberta.
Marc and I stood at the bridge watching young Braden row his duck boat into Betsie Lake and over towards the west side of the lake and up to where we were waiting. It took quite a while but he made it and he still had a smile on his face.

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
