Great photos! It looks like you had a great vacation. DH and I try to go to Grand Marais, MI once a year and we can attest to the long drive. It is worth it though. I didn't know about the three yarn stores though. We may have to make a route change next year. Samson and Delilah are getting a lot of blog time. I'm sure I saw them blogged about not too long ago. Kitties destined for fame perhaps.


Sounds like you really packed a lot into your time off!


That's a pileated woodpecker! We have several that hang out in our woods behind the house. They stand about a foot tall with quite a wing span. We have a pine tree out back that the parents take the young ones to to teach them how to make holes in a tree. The sound is like someone hitting a tree with a hammer. The one in your photo is a male. The females are a duller gray with a red crest.

Sounds like you had a wonderful time visiting your family.


What a fantastic post! You and Keith are so good at savoring life. I love reading your blog, you always make me feel like I was right there with you.

All that knitting with the Grandma's sounds perfect. I miss my G-ma's.


Oh that brought back memories of my college roomate, who was from Escanaba (sp?). Her mom used to send us pasties and homemade cinnamon bread,
