I am so impressed with the National Park Service. When a kid sends in a Flat Stanley, or in this case a Flat Ranger, as part of a summer project, the NPS takes the time to send somebody out to someplace beautiful in the park and have the Flat Ranger's picture taken. Here beautiful Lake Michigan is in the background, as well as North Manitou Island. Yes, that is my hand assisting in the Flat Ranger photo taking.

I think there is a conspiracy among rental cottage owners. Make sure there are NO sharp knives for the renters to use. They might hurt themselves and then the cottage owners might be held liable. Do you know how hard it is to cut a lime with a VERY dull knife?

I found this bowl here at the cottage and have fallen in love with it. Do you think anyone will notice if it goes missing at the end of next week? By the way the salad in the bowl is the start of a Quinoa Chickpea and Avocado Salad.

I have a confession to make, I really prefer to take photos on vacation with my iPhone as opposed to using my dSLR. First of all, it is convenient and works well with my joy of photographing random things. Second, the instant gratification. I can take a photo do a little editing and then send it right off to Instagram, or add it to my photo stream, so I can post to my blog while away. Third, I LOVE the apps and filters that I can use on the iPhone. Take for instance this photo....
I love the app. DistressedFX, one of my favorites. I like the moody landscapes I can create with it.

I found this burger - Black Bean Pesto Burger - I have been thinking about this burger for two years now, ever since I had a bite of my husband's last time we were here in the summer. And yes, it was worth the wait, so good.
