Early August in the U.P.


We arrived up north to hot muggy days and nights.  But a little breeze kept the bugs away and allowed us to enjoy the beach…

and enjoy the deck….

IMG_1971 At one point there were 29 of us, immediate family,  having dinner together.  Plus 9 dogs.

The kitchen was a busy place.  But somehow it all worked out just fine.  Everybody pitched in.   Although I must say that Patrice was the glue that held everything together in as much of an order as you can have with so many people!

We all found a bed in either the Kolar cabin, the Gardner cabin…or the new apartment above the garage:

Some brought tents….big and little ones coexisted happily as neighbors. 


At the end of the day, I don’t think any of us had a problem sleeping!
