Strange day today.. it was 79 degrees, but a crawling, sinister, creepy looking fog hovered over roofs, then sank like cotton to the ground and visibility was about three feet most of the morning. It was eerie and the perfect special effect for spooky themed parties!!
By the time I drove home from work this afternoon, the sky was bright blue, sunny and no fog in sight!! Great Lakes effect,, kind of like the California coast.
Until I was out there, I assumed, like most people do who do not live there, that all of the beaches were bright, sunny sandy places with hunky bodies, clean as a whistle and like the movies portray. Truth be told, in California, the Pacific coastal beaches are foggy all morning until about ten or eleven o'clock when the fog finally burns off.
Michigan beaches are never foggy in hot weather.. unless it is a rainy day all day.
DD and I continued to run errands again today: bathing supplies to mom at her place, grocery shopping and then a picnic in the city park across town.. Just the two of us at the picnic table, enjoying the weather and quiet.
Our town is now having "The River Of Time" which is a four day Civil War re-enactment in one of our big parks on this side of the river. I have not been to it in many years, but they have an Abe Lincoln actor, U.S Grant,etc roam around and people living their in their tents cooking and shaving, battles,etc for we twenty First Century peeps to observe.
This adds quite a few thousand more people in the mix on Friday rushing around..
I am glad we did it all, this weekend is all about cleaning, cutting back my berry bushes for winter, car cleaning..
