Peggy and I are a couple hours out, enjoying a late lunch at Crane's Apple Orchard and Pie Pantry in Fennville.

Nice dinner last night with DarkSpark, Shari and a bunch of WKC members. Very windy today. About to hit the beach.

Our red shadey thing is in the lower left hand corner of the picture. I think I was on nap #2 when the picture was taken. Great winds!
