We are in Indian River, Michigan. We drove through the tunnel of trees yesterday, at least most of it. There was a long detour which may have missed the most enclosed part. Here are a few photos:
When the trees thin out you can see Lake Michigan.
It was an interesting drive. It took a couple of hours.
Gene rode his trike for a couple of hours yesterday and I tried painting. I got out my acrylics and initiated a little table top easel that Brandon gave me for Christmas. I painted about an hour and had about half of an 8 x 10 canvas panel going and decided to terminate before it was really bad. Not the day for acrylics. I sketched and did some Cryptograms and other puzzles. It was a beautiful day and I was in the shade at a picnic table. Nice!!
For Scavenger Hunt459 in the travel sketchbook with a Micron 02.
Number 2, building - the motel front
Number 3, soft - pillows
Number 4, hard, the metal backboard and pipes of the basketball goal out front
Number 5, landscape - across the street from the motel. This is what I was painting, but much better than the acrylics.
Today Gene biked again and I walked. He rode his trike along slowly with me. Nice guy. I walked about 40 minutes, he went on his way to a trail and got soaked on the way back. :-) There were some gulls on the ground so he made them fly....
He saw this cool mailbox with a drawer for the paper.
These are from Gene's ride yesterday.
