Bicycling along Lake Michigan

A few weeks ago we had guests who were into bicycling.  They had bikes for every circumstance.  Just look at these.

Here Lisa and Matt are on their way to Arcadia, having started from Elberta Beach
That would be a 13 mile bike ride along the Lake Michigan shoreline !

(If you click on each picture twice, a really large picture reveals itself…)

Lisa, taking a break, sitting in the outlet

The “outlet” – Lower Herring Lake into Lake Michigan

And back up north to Wayfarer Lodgings

Tim Allen should be talking about this in one of his Pure Michigan commercials.

Does this not look like fun?

More Pure Michigan

Tonight we were at the annual Convention and Visitors Bureau Dinner at Crystal Mountain.  We had great cocktails, fantastic food and a really good speaker Dave Lorenz.   Anyway, he’s with Pure Michigan and he showed us the three new local commercials for this year’s campaign.  My very own husband is in one of them, fly fishing.   I have pictures to prove it 😆

Cool, isn’t it?  I took pictures of the pictures that were displayed, hence the quality…

For a laugh tune into this video

Cirque du Soleil  worked fine – I pulled # 67, it belongs tooooooooooooooooooo

The book that I showed you in this post

I am excited – you might be too

Dear friends,  a brand new book is coming my way and I would like to give it to one of my readers who loves Michigan as much as I do.  You might remember the Pure Michigan sponsored photo contest from last year.  This book is a compilation of all of the best photos that were submitted by various photographers staying here in Benzie County and elsewhere around the state.

The book has arrived in book stores – Merri Heffelfinger, from the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, saw it at Borders the other day…I have one coming and I want you to have it.

Here’s the crux of the story, I cannot think of anything to ask you.  However, I have wet your appetite. Keep looking  for the contest because as soon as I think of something good, the contest begins.
