Wow! What a beautiful sky....wanted to run out to the marsh for sunset pictures.
Had a nice hayride through Oakwoods Metropark and then bonfire after
Mare tails, I believe these cloud formations are called.

Hope this isn't the last rose of summer. Heavenly smell from this one.

This is the light house on the north end of the island...a little bit of a slog uphill but beautiful views once you get there. Took lots of photos...still need to edit.
Saturday we are going on a hayride (bonfire after) with Crack O' Dawn group at Oakwoods Metropark and Sunday we have a photo shoot. Doing the Washtenaw County Barn tour...my favorite!

The talk was really interesting and I learned that in the 1930's there were sand hills in Gibraltar that were excavated by a group of armatures diggers. The replica of a pipe (shown below) was a big find. It is a ceremonial pipe from ancients that may have been the woodsmen. I lived in Gibraltar for 14 years and had no idea of the history there and in the metropark area.
Another replica of a pipe.
Pot found also in the area. This is the real thing and can be found on display at the Nature Center at the park.

I saw so many people that I know....my one time handy man Billy, Pam from the Obama campaign headquarters 2012, Donna from my camera class and Lyn a new camera class member. All of the Crack O' Dawners were there, a lot volunteering for the event. Good to see so many people that I know...thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend!
Tim, Liam and Emma catching a presentation... Emma seems attentive but looks bored.
Tim, taking advantage of the kids activities ;-)
