The weather up here is a cool 76 today with wind coming off the water. We went to church Sunday morning and had the scheduled first of the month brunch served downstairs in their basement kitchen area. As usual, it was delicious with sausage and cheesy potatoes casserole, coffee cakes, donuts, blueberry scones, coffee, and orange juice.
Friday evening I baked a double recipe of my famous Amaretto Bread Pudding and served it up with hot coffee outside of our trailer on the water. You can see in the picture, we had sweatshirts and jackets on.
Saturday night, we went over to James’ motor home for appetizer evening, us taking homemade pizza. Later several went down for ice cream at the park’s recreation room.
Sunday afternoon Patty and Guy Estep, a couple we camp by in Olde Mill Stream in Umatilla, drove up to visit with us and John and Judy. They were camped in the Straights State Park outside St. Ignacs. It was good to see them. I have included pictures of them, us, Robertsons, and James.
Sunday evening it cooled down fast. At 9:00 it was 63 degrees, nice jeans and sweatshirt weather. I took my camera out and shot some dusk shots of our docks and wildlife.
A little history of Cedarville: Cedarville began as a Euro-American settlement in the 1880s. It was a lumber and fishing port on the central channel of Les Cheneaux. Eventually the village became the provisioning point for summer people with homes on the islands. There are lots of old wooden docks out in our channels of waters left from the lumbering industry. That’s why you see lots of lumber under and sticking out of the water. I included one picture of Old Historical Cedarville.
Tuesday morning we left for an adventure. It was one of those trips where you start out and you just go where your heart leads you. From Sault Ste Marie we followed the shore of Lake Superior, stopped along the way to look for some rocks, and stopped several other places such as rest/viewing areas of Lake Superior, a lighthouse, a little ice cream shop, Tahquamenon Falls, supper at Newberry, then headed home. We left at 10:00 A.M. and got back to our trailer a little before 9:00 P.M. It was a great day with sunshine and cool breezes.
Today, Don took Paul and Richard for a boat ride, and this evening we went to an outdoor folk music concert at the Maritime Museum down the road from our campground.
