When these lovely homes were built, they were considered to be “Summer Cottages”.
And I love looking at them, thinking of the history they've been part of while they've stood here on this Island in the middle of the Straights between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron ---who owned these? What was their life like? What memories were made here?
We took a long walk on Tuesday afternoon after my last class was done, The Hubster, my friend Jill, and Myself – just on foot, exploring we went, winding up down town for dinner on our last night on the Island, making rather good use of the warmest afternoon yet – temps in the high 40s.
We climbed high and looked down at lovely older inns.
And we walked down narrow lanes past cottages just waiting for occupants to arrive for “The Season.”
I hope you enjoy the slide show of the dwellings we passed on our evening jaunt. Click the image below if you are unable to view the slide show on your mobile device. You’ll be taken to the photo album for viewing.
