We were in Marquette in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan last week visiting our daughter at college. Here are five random finds from the weekend.
Find No. 1
We have a favorite indie bookstore in Marquette called Snowbound Books. It is in an old house. It is such a delight to explore all the shelves full of books. Many great staff recommendations as well.
Find No. 2
Here are the books I found while at Snowbound that had to come home with me. We have seen the movie Monuments Men so now I would like to read the book.
Find No. 3
I am attracted to old, boarded up buildings like a bear is attracted to honey. This is a former Catholic Orphanage built in 1915. I have a few more pictures of this place to share in a post on our trip sometime this weekend. The snow and -6 wind chill prevented me from taking as many shots as I would have liked.
Find No. 4
The pigeons found the perfect place to roost in the one window that wasn't boarded up from the outside.
Find No. 5
The Eben Ice Caves were even more spectacular than last year, maybe all the arctic air that Marquette has experienced this winter is the reason.
