Indian Summer

One of our favorite places to visit in the fall is Traverse City, Michigan.  We haven't gotten to go since we started this business but Ed surprised me and made the reservation.  I'm sure its beautiful any time of the year but we enjoy it in the fall because it's dressed in brilliant hues, and it's not as crowded this time of year.  It's breath taking everywhere you look, the food is amazing, and the peninsula is full of winery's and now distilleries and there are micro brews all over town.  It's a sensory overload and a great way to re-charge!  

Even the clouds are brilliant!

Farm stands are everywhere

The vineyards

and the bay at Lake Michigan

This is our last week of Farm house, and next week we set up for "The Great Gatsby" so here's a last look of October.
