Now we know that summer has finally arrived. The weather has been so beautiful and the forecast promises more of the same for the week. Temps to be in the 70’s.
We’ve had a busy week here at the Wayfarer. We had our first regular guests come and stay for the week and weekend.
Friends came from far and wide to say goodbye to a friend.
It was a beautiful day when we gathered at one of Bill’s favorite places – along the Betsie Valley Trail
…is what brought us into town this evening. We picked up the pies, stashed them away in the car and decided to take a walk up Main Street in Frankfort, heading for the beach. We saw a whole lot of good stuff. So without further ado –
The weather today was perfect for a long walk. And on the way we saw a lot of friends that were doing the same thing – enjoy the beach and a walk through town. So much so that we got stopped numerous times to chat and give opinions, hehe – Kelly Stapleton stopped in the middle of Main Street to ask me if I thought that her truck made her look fat
It wasn’t too cold, the sun was shining off and on, it snowed and the wind blew snow every which way.
Swirls of snow across the bay made me stop and take pictures.
I don’t think I did a very good job though. Another interesting thing was seeing all the shanties already in the bay,
plopped down on what looked like they were floating on small shards of ice in the water
Looking from the Library across the bay and towards the Betsie River
This is the view from Main Street towards the Library and left across the bay to Elberta and as you can see, they are already pushing the snow in place for the snowmobile races for Shiver by the River taking place in February .
The next three pictures were taken from the Elberta side of the bay, aprox. 20 seconds apart.
Cool huh? This last picture is taken alongside Furnace Ave. in Elberta, looking toward M-22 – across Betsie Bay
