I should have never, never, never, never said I would post a blog for Saturday morning.
After a day of cleaning, Ted and I were ready to get out of the condo late this afternoon and go do something a little more exciting than vacuum cobwebs out of corners. Therefore, this little post is going to be somewhat (actually, a lot) shorter than I planned. Thank goodness I already had some photos picked out and ready to go.
Jill snapped this pic of the "four of us" a few days ago in front of the Jockey Club. Notice that, as usual, Maddie has her mind on everything BUT having her picture made.
The J.L. Beanery window - ready for the ghosts and goblins!
The Mission end of Main Street - quiet on this late afternoon a few days ago.
Across the Jewel Golfcourse late this afternoon, as Ted and I walked downtown. It would be so much easier to leave if the weather was not so perfect.
One of the Grand Hotel ivy topiary horses (don't know if this is Peat or Moss - seriously, that is their names) - taken very early this morning by Mary. The horses and carriage were being loaded on a ferry for a trip downstate, to winter in a large greenhouse.
Thanks, Jill, for this cute pic of happy pumpkins in front of a home in the Mission District.
Ted, Maddie, and Bear coming down Cadotte to meet me one day this week.
The steeples of St. Annes - against a beautiful sky.
Ted on the way to the post office this morning with the three boxes I had to ship home - even after all that organized packing.
I snapped this late this afternoon as we walked into the Chippewa Hotel for dinner. It might be one of my top three favorites photos for the whole season.
See you back here on Sunday morning for my final glimpse of Mackinac Magic for the season.
Personal Note: Thanks to all of you who lifted Blake up last week during his third Skype interview with the church in Nashville, TN. Today he was invited to come to Nashville next week, Oct. 20, for a person-to-person interview with the pastor and staff director. He is so excited, but trying not to get his hopes too high. Please continue to remember him in your prayers as he goes through this next step. God bless.
