Up North Again

Well we're on vacation again.  Back to the Upper Peninsula.  This time we are house sitting for my son and watching his pets.  We've been here a week and and have enjoyed some beautiful weather.  That is until today.  Thunderstorms have been rolling though this morning at an alarming rate.  But they do need the rain.

We have made a few day trips.  We went up to Copper Harbor.  And visited Eagle Harbor Light House.  It was a beautiful day but windy.

The shoreline is quite rocky.

And it is really beautiful there.

As much as I enjoy it here I am getting a bit homesick.  I miss my sewing machine and all my fabric.  I brought some hand work but it's not the same.

We will be here about 5 more days and then we will be homeward bound.  I hope to have something quilty to share then.

Wishing you a wonderful quilty day.

Hugs, Cathy

even though you are homesick it looks like a nice place to relax.

Take a stroll for me along the shore - I miss it up there! Glad you're having a good time but I can sure understand you getting homesick for your sewing.
