Ted's Standard Service

This sign tried to remain hidden but I saw it as I was passing it out in Leelanau County today. The nearest small town is Lake Leelanau and I believe that there actually was a Ted's Standard Service station there, with clean restrooms apparently. A nice little find today.

Lake Michigan Kiteboarding

Lake Michigan kiteboarding. The kites visually preceded the surfers as I pulled my car into the sand-dusted parking lot at the beach in Frankfort. It's the south/ southwest wind that is optimal here, according to the surfers. If it wasn't for the cold and changing leaves nearby, it could've been Malibu. Malibu would've had far more people though.

ArtPrize Horses

Today I returned from a trip to Grand Rapids to see ArtPrize for the first time. It was such a sight to see an amazingly varied and vast collection of art by such talented artists. This piece by artist Richard Morse was one of many spectacular pieces on display.
