The best of summer

I love July in Michigan.  I love July in Michigan on the water even better.  It has been an absolutely glorious summer on the lake.  A summer full of good friends, great food, and amazing pictures.

Sunrise. Seriously this is the most amazing sunrise I have ever seen EOTE.  So glad I got up at the crack of dawn.


Clouds.


Our neighbor. He is a good looking neighbor.


And our favorite time here. We love the Au Sable Race, the racers start in Grayling at 9:00 pm, paddle through the night, and arrive in Oscoda at about 10:30 am.  They don't stop, they portage their own canoes, and they are rockstars.  50,000 spectators will watch this race at various points along with way. This year, after 120 miles, the finish came down to a nose. We couldn't believe it.  It was the most exciting finish I have seen in my six years here.

Congratulations all around.

The wind has been rocking and rolling here.  A little carnage but we love it here.


Cheers to summer!
