As always, this place inspires me like no other.
I had a week on Lake Michigan with a few of my very dear cousins. It was my first time visiting in September in three decades. Fall arrived my first night there.
The mornings were crisp and vivid.
It was mostly mixed clouds and sun, and lots of wind.
Lake Michigan is like a highly sensitive woman, so responsive to the changing weather. Her mood can change completely overnight.
The trees at Michillinda always overcome me with their grandeur and grace.
This oak in the foreground especially....
But really, this year was about the wind and the whitecaps.
This was the most amazing, howling sunset.
Here is the view a little later, looking the other way, towards the north.
There was so much wind earlier in the day while I was going down to the beach that it blew my glasses off my face onto the bank, never to be seen again! (We looked and looked, although I confess I couldn't see too well.)
So I had to go into town to get some reading glasses to tide me over until I get some new prescription ones.
Aren't they fetching?
It was so hard to leave yesterday...though it's always great to come on home.
So good-bye, beloved cottage, until next year.......
Oh, and I did work on a very fun project all week which I will post next time.
