A New Season

Hi all,

I started back up at May’s Candy Shops this last week, and had a pretty good first day. We’re experiencing much more business this time of year which is a nice surprise, and I’m very happy to be making candy again. Ready to get hungry? Here are a few pics!

We’ve had some weird weather up here lately – it keeps saying rain in the forecast, and yet it mostly just rains at night and then it’s sunny all day long. A couple of mornings it was incredibly foggy! If you’ve ever watched the movie, The Mist, that’s what it felt like… anyway, we’ve had some very fortunate sunsets as well, and my I enjoyed the view as a few birds enjoyed the water.

Night Snow

Hey all,

Some photos at night from around Mackinac Island.

It was more difficult to take photos at night than I thought, so it took me a few rides and a few tries to get just a few good photos. But I did it! First, some photos from downtown:

The Chippewa Hotel has some neat blue lights hanging above the sidewalk, so it looks as though you’re walking on some kind of magical path!

As you can see, the dark did not take well to the tiny little flash on my ipod...

But I found that I took slightly better photos near a lamppost

I guess you could say this was during twilight rather than evening... but still a great view of downtown from East Bluff.

School offically takes its winter break tomorrow afternoon, which means I’ll have plenty more time to write a few chapters for my online story! Stay tuned for Chapter 4…. and happy holidays, everyone!
