The summer solstice was officially yesterday, June 20. Here in Michigan, we marked the occasion with temperatures in the low 90s. After 3 weeks in California, I marked the occasion by giving our garden a soaking that it needed.
Summer is our busy season with a lot of traveling and a lot of visitors. We'll cover over 6,000 miles in trips and have family come in from Florida to California. It's when we cram in as much activity as the sunlight will allow. Last night, we docked the boat at sunset... a spectacular red sunset.
Too many people think of "Detroit" when they think of Michigan. Yeah, there is that. But that's only 140 square miles of Michigan's total 96,810 square miles... 11th largest state.
If this sounds like an advertisement, it certainly could be construed that way. But it really is about the feeling you get from looking out at the water, the green trees and plentiful wildlife [although the Canadian geese on our lawn irritate me]. And it is a summer paradise for golfers. Michigan is a great place to be when the sun shines the longest.
