Hiking the Trails at Au Sable

The kids were eager for a hike on the trails at Au Sable this morning. A beautiful morning, 62 degrees, sunny and windy. Perfect for wearing the sweaters we brought along. Spring is just unfolding here in northern Michigan. Leaves are just popping out, spring ephemerals making their yearly appearance. So many memories of this land from 20 years ago. Could it be so long ago? The log cabin is still as beautiful as it was the day it was built. The kids had fun looking at all the voyager's belongings.

A New Day, A New Start

As I headed out for my morning walk I had to grab my camera to catch this beautiful sunrise. What a great way to begin the day.

Sunrise to Sunset

I rise along with the sun
A new day
A new start

The mistakes and success' of yesterday are long since gone
It's a new day
Some I want to end just as they begin
others to last forever

No matter my mood
My strength
My Fatigue
It's a new day
It's a new start

Choices are made
To show love
To show hate
To work strong
Or fall to FATE
These choices all must face
Ones that lead to good
Others--- not so much

As the sun descends
The day comes to an end
We face the consequences of our daily wake
Hearts broken
Hearts mended
New friends
New enemies
But here we enter the forgiveness of the night
A new day
A new start.

Sana Farm to Table

This afternoon we were able to visit Sana's new restaurant in Rincon. It is so wonderful to see Sana grow and recover after being hit so hard by the hurricane. The food was wonderful!

Brewing Kombucha

I have been making Kombucha now for about a month and I love it! It is such a great alternative to other carbonated drinks. Pretty low in sugar and definitely high in the bubbles. I guess I left this batch to sit a bit longer and got something a bit closer to champagne.

Rincon Farmers' Market

Sunday mornings bring us to the Rincon Farmers' Market before we head to church. I pick up all my veggies I need from Sana's Farm Stand. It has been a slow recovery in growing things since Hurricane Maria swept the island in September, but things are starting to look up. The tables are full again and very busy selling to locals and tourists. Our friends Cassie and Britton have been selling flowers at the market and the girls LOVE to visit with them at their table.

Nap Time

After Lucia falls asleep for her nap I often find Kanu snuggled up to her for his nap, too. So cute. We love this puss.
