On becoming 40...

My heart always calls out to my beloved Leelanau...

Could it be my love of these waters and land go far and deep into the depth of my soul as one of my greats gone before me was a keeper of the lights on South Manitou island, John Tobin?

I would love to have a place here someday. Time will tell...

My heart is called to the coasts of England...and I recently found out my paternal g.g.g.grands came from Cornwall in the 1800's...and my g.g.g.g.grands came from Germany and settled in Lancaster, PA...they were Pennsylvania Dutch. Whoo hoo. I KNEW I had yearnings for England for a reason! My dream trip has always been to go to England/Ireland...go figure! ;o) XOXO

I was revisting your blog recently.I had looked at it before.
I've been writing a blog about my desire to be a farmer, and my observations.

We live in Benzie County and LOVE it - winters are long and grey, but hey, it's Michigan! Hope you can find your slice up around these parts some day - there are some bargains ($$$) these days too :)

I certainly understand, having grown up on Little Traverse Bay (Lake Michigan). Water has a way of stirring one's soul. Wow...your post was timely with regard to the card that is on its way to you...you'll see once you receive it.

Oh I love Leelenau...One of the happiest, most beautiful places I know. I love reading your posts :)

we're seriously reconsidering retiring there instead of our long planned-for retirement in Hawaii. We get Traverse magazine here in Zambia and it makes us miss Leelanau. Plus, it's a warmer hardiness zone (zone 6!!) so there are more planting days.
