Home Away from Home

Yesterday was the fifth Sunday this season that we spent at Terrace Inn in Bay View which borders on the beautiful Little Traverse Bay of Lake Michigan. We trade yard art for lodging and have loads of fun working with Patty the owner. Below is our room. Also a pic of John before dinner sitting on the back patio facing the sign we spent a lot of time restoring and butterflies that we brought from the shop. We always bring our bikes and ride both morning and evening, yesterday clocking some 28 miles. The trails are beautiful and offer nice surprises along the way. When we arrived in the little town of Alanson just before noon, we wondered what was going on with the crows of people. Turns out it was their annual River Festival. We were treated to a lively concert presented by the Petosky Steel Drum Band, 30 talented and barefoot high school kids making music and dancing---a lot of old favorites. On the way home today, I asked John to turn around so I could snap a picture of an artsy tall shoe tree. Sometimes we fear we're having just too much fun.
