A welcomed day off

I've noticed, since moving to Munising, the fog in the morning rolls in and out, and then before you know it, everything is clear. Kind of like the way my mind works!
My kayak has been laying around near the waters edge, just waiting to get wet other than from rain, but it's been just a tad bit too cool to get out there comfortably w/out a wetsuit. I'm hoping the weather becomes more like summer pretty soon, or like this past March, when we had 80 degrees! These rainy, grey days have not gone to waste as I have been finishing up my organizing of the new digs and making the place look like home. It's been fun unearthing treasures I've had wrapped and boxed since I moved back in January of '11 and never unpacked in the Chatham house since I was only renting and that house was for sale. I never knew when I was going to get evicted if it sold, so I didn't get as comfortable as I would have liked had it been my 'home' home.

Rainy Pictured Rocks day

My daughter Amy came to visit me in Chatham Wednesday and stayed until Friday. We always make the most of our time together, so we went to Marquette Weds. evening to eat and spent Thursday being tourists visiting the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore with Brinkley in tow, of course! The weather was a tad dreary, but I am not complaining as it has been unseasonalbly warm the past week. The water was cold, but that didn't stop Brinkley!

The Au Sable falls were roaring! We spent some time hiking down the stairs, platforms and foot trail to the beach, where the mouth of the Au Sable comes out. Technically, we weren't supposed to be there....
But what's a little police tape to a prison employee?! The Park Service was just concerned about safety which is why they strung up the tape. We were safe, and no one, including the dog, was harmed in the taking of these photos.

We had a great time together and did a lot of laughing. Brinkley had a good time, too!
