Weekend "Up North"

My husband's brother got married on Sunday.  The wedding was "up north" in Michigan, near Grand Traverse Bay.  We stayed near Traverse City, which is a vacation destination for many people.  Beaches, boating, fishing, golfing, lots of fun shops and restaurants.  We spent part of the weekend exploring the area.  Here are some of the photos I took, including a farmers' market on Saturday.



They were holding a funeral for a community leader at the City Opera House.




Farmers' Market











Someone knitted an outfit for this tree... 


Water bowls for dogs passing by, each paired with a dog themed book.









I think this pig was smiling at me... 



We tasted some wine. 







This reminded me of a hobbit house... the front door above and the back door below. 



I made my husband turn around and drive back so I could photograph the giant swan!

The photos really give the feel of the place and the atmosphere of the farmers market. It looks like you had a great time Judy, and I enjoyed seeing the photo of you and husband together.

I'm glad you liked them, Pam. We met a very nice couple who were retired and traveling the country with their little dog (the one in the stroller/carrier). The man offered to take our photo.
