Taking a Break

The house is coming along albeit slowly. We had been, and still are, working from dawn to dark daily and needed a break. On a recent past Sunday we decided to work only in the morning and take the afternoon off. We took our two dogs, Daisy and Molly, and drove through the magnificent Leelanau Peninsula just north of our home in Benzie County, taking in the glorious color as summer changes to autumn, the wonderful smells of fall in the air, apple orchards, wine tasting, and time spent near Lake Michigan.

Omena Bay - part of West Grand Traverse Bay which is part of Lake Michigan

Our favorite winery and tasting room located on Omena Bay

Woolsey Memorial Airport, Northport, MI

The little building at the airport is built of all native stone.

An apple orchard/farm specializing in antique/heirloom apples. We had a lot of apples at home so bought only a gallon of marvelous fresh-pressed apple cider.

This lovely lady greeted us at the antique apple orchard.

From the back - dreadlocks.
