Better Weather Than Expected
Today, Thursday, rain came again to Leelanau, but considering that last week’s forecast for this week was clouds and rain and thunderstorms every day, it’s been a surprisingly beautiful stretch, as these pictures of the harbor and the sailing school on Wednesday afternoon attest.
Elizabeth Buzzelli was a big hit at the library on Tuesday evening. I’m sorry that this picture of her cannot convey the hilarity her remarks provoked. (I knew I should have taken notes!) There was no thunder and lightning this year during her presentation--only bursts of laughter and applause.
Wednesday evening David had dinner with an old friend, who is currently renting a house belonging to mutual old friends. Here is David posing in one of Geoff and Carlene’s Peace Corps souvenirs next to one of his most well-known paintings, familiar to many through wine labels and posters. (Hey, Robin, up in da U.P., this one's especially for you!)
Our return home brought us west, into a magnificent sunset.
