Dispatches from the U.P.

CRW_4425CRW_4422Hey everybody. We’re in the Upper Peninsula right  now. It’s absolutely gorgeous up here. Fall foliage is OUT, unlike down in the city, where it has been a painfully slow burn. We’re at a motel with a little balcony facing a tiny lake. Alan’s sister is getting married on Monday afternoon so we’re having an extended weekend. The drive was long but it was colorful.

It’s about an 8 hour drive, and I’m fighting this cold, and neither of us got that much sleep last night, so it was a bit murderous to be honest. I’m glad the weather was good, and the colors were out.

Alan’s sister and her family live in Michigan and we only see them about once a year. Maybe twice if we’re lucky.  With two weddings, we got lucky. Her two boys are uhhhhh, rambunctious.

None of the photos of their many adventures climbing Uncle Alan like a tree made the cut, unfortunately…

I’m glad we got an early start so we could arrive when it was still warm and light out.

More tomorrow, and Monday!
