Bright and sunny days have been a bit difficult to come by around here lately, with the wind threatening to whisk you away on the handful of days the sun has decided to make an appearance. When Wednesday offered up an exception to this weather pattern, Jim and I were determined to capitalize on what daylight we could with a lunch excursion, knowing the sun would set too early to leave much time for post-work play (near-5pm sunsets being back upon us, and all).
We grabbed the camera, a couple of sandwiches from Folgarelli’s (a delectable, old-world, deli-lovers-dream that our friends turned us on to), and cruised up the bay to dine waterside (meaning at the park) in Elk Rapids. From the still, glassy water to the warm, rippled sand, mother nature had a variety of lovely textures to offer up. I submit here my brief retrospect, along with hopes that the sun smiles on both your shoulders and mine again real soon.
