Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Old Mission Peninsula..................

Today was a later start. This morning we had to go see Tristens doctor, we are changing his meds. Now is a good time to do that without the added burden of school. His moods swings are difficult to work with, especially if we have our own problems.
The Van was in the shop getting fixed, something to do with the steering so Laura took us to the doctors (Thank you Laura) thankfully we got the van back at the end of the day, another expense we could have done without but...........thank the Lord we can still pay for things like that. My pension is gone though. That's it, all used up.
So after the docs we went to breakfast so we didn't have to worry about lunch etc. We were going to go for a hike but decided we were all too pooped. We went to Cracker Barrel, I could do without the shop there. Bummer, I spent some money in there.
After that we decided upon the Old Mission Peninsula, its been awhile since we have been there. I could not believe the new buildings, the new Vineyards.We are supposed to be "Cherry Capital of the world" but so many orchards are now Vineyards. Its a great grape growing climate. The Chateaus are huge.

Not only new Vineyards but big mansions going up sprinkled throughout. We know there are a lot of wealthy people around here but wow.

On a clear day with blue skys you can see forever. We went up to the end of the Peninsula where there is a lighthouse.

We are half way between the North Pole and the Equator.

Both kids fussed about using the toilets at that park. We have been fortunate so far in the Leelanau County toilets, they keep them pristine. Well as much as is possible with a chemical toilet.
Loads of Chipmunks, I mean a LOT. Not scared either so I suppose people feed them.

We went for a short walk, we were too tired for a hike, the woods were a little cooler, it was too hot for me.

Lots of fungus in the woods, we also pretend about Fairy houses and we figure we found an apartment complex its fun to pretend.

After a bit the trail cuts off and you can get to the beach.

It was not a long day out like we normally do but was better than staying in. Oh and we stopped at a yard sale. I got both kids new scooters, these a bit different to what they have. So for 5 minutes they were happy.
