Second Day – Just as Great as the First

Standard

We woke up to the steady drizzle of rain this morning. After yesterday’s glorious warmth, today was quite a contrast. But we didn’t let it deter us in any way. We ate a long breakfast and pulled on our going out to shop clothes and slipped on the extended walking shoes and girded ourselves for some serious browsing.

First stop is a nice “little bit of everything” store. Nothing appealing to a trio of cheapskates.

The next place, though, is a jewelry shop of modest expense. We scour every glass case and every piece, if only to ogle them in appreciation of their beauty. A variety of pieces capture our attention until Kelly and I decide to pay closer attention to the charm bracelets and charms. She had decided to do a charm bracelet instead of a class ring, the bracelet having so much more practicality than a dated class ring. We find two starter charms and a perfect silver rope bracelet, all on sale. We are so miserly.

Next stop the chocolatier. Need I say more?

My sack had sooo much more than this in it originally.

A bookstore, more clothes, some beef jerky. I ended up with a tourist tee-shirt sporting “Tawas Bay”

The next place was the best of them all. I found miracle soap I can’t wait to use on stains it promises to extricate from fabrics.

And my favorite thing…. wine. Local wines… Wonderful light, and semi-sweet, fruity.

Later this afternoon we make a visit to the light house that used to guard the bay decades ago.

Very picturesque. Very turn of the century and historic. Especially against the dark, cloudy sky.

The wind is blowing like a son of gun off the point this afternoon. We are wearing jackets in the middle of July.

Love taking pictures of the lake with the sky and my favorite person. Great day all in all.

Thanks for sharing another day of my little slice of heaven.

Love,
Jeannene
