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.

Waiting for Spring

Lately, it’s been difficult getting down an accurate view of Mackinac Island in its current state, as the weather in Michigan has been changing on almost a daily basis. When I got back from my spring vacation on Saturday, there was no snow at all on the island. The next morning, I woke up to a fresh blanket of snow that just kept coming down. Then Monday and Tuesday we were met with clear, sunny days and melting snow, leaving us once again with grass and clearer roads. I took a walk around downtown yesterday and Monday, and flashed a few photos with my new camera…


The water is clear and blue, a welcoming sign of spring for me!

  

Down at the marina, still lots of clear, blue water, with bits of snow on the docks.


  

It’s still cold enough for trees on the shoreline to be covered in ice

  

It is now Wednesday morning, and here I am looking out at another snowy front yard! When will mother nature make up her mind… anyway, this is a shorter blog than usual for me, but I’m sure there will be more in the near future as I play with this new camera of mine. Until next time…
