All Manner of Goings-On
It was the day of the Farm Market down by the harbor parking lot. Woodruff Palmer, artist and owner of the Painted Horse Gallery, came in to sign his new paintings, and his wife, Bonnie Marris, brought “Baby” Shane, Sarah’s new puppy friend, for a visit. Dusty (the collie) came, too, of course.
Besides dogs, more new books arrived today and yesterday at Dog Ears: Jim Harrison’s new book of poetry, In Search of Small Gods; Planet Backpacker: Across Europe on a Mountain Bike & Backpacking on Through Egypt, India & Southeast, by Robert Downes of Traverse City; Insects of the Great Lakes Region; and, in keeping with expansion of the homesteading section, Backyard Poultry Keeping. A new book on raising goats will be coming soon.
Tomorrow, the Lighthouse and Maritime Festival and Fish Boil! All here in Northport!
