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.

That sunset IS magnificent. Maybe we'll get summer here for more than a day at a time too. The last week of July/first week of August is supposed to bring the best weather in Nova Scotia. Hopefully next week will set that right.

OK, now, see, I really want to know where Geoff and Carlene served in the Peace Corps, because that is some hat. It looks as if it could stand up under any weather, expected or not.

I just put Elizabeth Buzzelli's Elk Rapids appearance in my calendar. This will be fun.

I hope you do have a nice August in Nova Scotia. The hat came from one of the -stans, but which one? G&C were in two of them, first one, then the other, and I can't spell either one!
