Venturing out for some art and culture while staying in


Being under orders to social distance in our homes during the Covid-19 pandemic does not prevent us from getting out and exploring, virtually, some of the world’s greatest museums of art.  I have a gathered here links to four temporary exhibits that no one is able to view right now except on the Internet.  After that I have included links to a host of museums and cultural sites that you can explore in the safety of your home.  If I come across more

Sleeping Bear Photo Shoot

Up at what my friend Mel calls “O dark early,” to travel to the Leelanau Peninsula to take some photos.  I wanted to be there before sunrise, which was about 7:15 a.m. So, I was up at 3:40 a.m. and out the door by 4:00 a.m. It was 3 degrees when I set up my tripod in a field overlooking Glen Lake.  I was rewarded with this photo. Not a bad start to the day.glen-lake-6151

From there, I headed to Glen Haven to walk along the shore of Sleeping Bear Bay to the point.  But first, I stopped to take a couple of photos along D.H. Day Farm Road.

Next to Shalda Creek where it flows into Good Harbor Bay.

Along M-72, on my way to Traverse City, I spotted these fruit trees and had to stop.



Found a New Home

After many years hosted on, I have moved the blog to WordPress. The site, which was so convenient, has been taken down by its new owners. If you are listening former Posterous developers and workers, thank you for coming up with a great site that prompted me to begin this site where I can keep track of, and share, my Internet discoveries.
