Will you relate a FUNNY SUMMER memory or an endearing one? Let’s share a feel-good moment in time.
I’ll go first: When I was about eight years old, my parents took us on a road trip around Lake Michigan. At that time we lived on the western shore of that Great Lake. We drove up through Wisconsin to Upper Peninsula Michigan (the U.P.) where they were building the Mackinac Island bridge (pronounce Mackinaw).
I remember standing on one of those round steps and looking through the binoculars to see them building this long bridge spanning the shore between Upper Michigan and the Island. WOW. The bridge is one of the longest suspension bridges in the world at 5 miles from end to end. For some more history, click https://www.mackinacbridge.org/history/the-mighty-mac/ .
Then we took a ferry over to the Michigan “Mitten” or Lower Michigan and drove down stopping at ALL the wonderful fruit stands. Michigan grows delicious peaches, cherries, grapes and more–YUM! I can remember the juices dripping down my chin as my big brother and I chowed down! The bridge and fruit are what I recall and the time sitting beside my brother in my dad’s Chevy. I’m sure neither of us ever asked, “Are we there yet?”
My book priced at 75% off through Aug 18th is Bitter Autumn. It’s set on the shore of Lake Superior. Did you know that if they emptied this lake that all of the US would be under 5ft of water? Now that’s a SUPERIOR lake!
“Lyn Cote’s Bitter Autumn is an edge of your seat, do not expect to put it down adventure. I am always emotionally spent when I finish her books!” 99 cents till Aug 18th
