As I’m going stir-crazy like so many others, today I decided to take a drive north, to a couple of my favorite places to visit. It isn’t only the destinations but the ride down country roads that don’t see much traffic in the off season. My first stop was the maze-faux-labyrinth at Cherry Point Farm & Market near Silver Lake. Next was a few miles down the road, to Silver Lake, in Golden Township (not making this up!) The lake is on the other side of a giant set of dunes along Lake MI. One business offers dune buggy rides, where the buggies look like 3/4 buses with their roofs cut off and added roll bars. They were put away today for the season. The sign outside said, “Thank you for an interesting year.” Individuals can get permits to drive their own dune buggies on the dunes, which would be fun and scary both.
At the m-f-l, many of the flowers had been deadheaded, but some were still blooming. I didn’t get out of the car to take the lighthouse picture as it was approaching dusk and I didn’t feel like walking out to it.
And now for the bonus video. This morning I put my solar dancing skeletons on the floor and took a video of Mlady’s examination of them.
