Eleventh Anniversary and More

In some ways we mark our lives by a series of picnics. Here, John in his best pink work shirt, is dining alone to celebrate our August 28th eleventh anniversary, though I was quick to join him. We go to the best deli in town to purchase our favorite delicacies and have enough leftovers for the next day. Last weekend we made a summer pilgrimage to the Petoskey area and stayed at our favorite spot in Bayview, the Terrace Inn, est. 1911. While there we went along the bay up to Harbor Springs and enjoyed another picnic. Below is a house I spotted while biking north to Alanson--a beautiful little stone structure that has seen better days. Yesterday, fearing the heat of today, we took our Labor Day bike trip to Johnson Park, a 35-mile round-trip ride going through several large parks along the way--left the camera home.
