One of my favorite spots to picnic is Peterson Park, north of Northport on the west side of the Leelanau Peninsula. Because it is so far from the thoroughfares and population centers, way out on the end of the peninsula, it's more of a local haunt. And as the sun drops into Lake Michigan, a small knowledgeable parade…Continue

Our part of Earth Day today was to clean North Beach in Leland. Gorgeous day. Lots of sunshine and blue water. Very little breeze. And very little trash.

I walked across the lake the other day.
Now, before everyone south of Indiana starts bringing me their blind, I need to clarify: the lake was frozen.
I know! Frozen enough to walk on!!! It was the first time I had ever stepped foot on a frozen body of water.
Scary cool. (Actually, "frighteningly cold" is more accurate as it was about 13 degrees.)
My destination: The Junior Clam.
"Blue canvas ice shanty two left of the other two but not the one in the…
