Some events Friday lead us to conclude it was a good idea to depart MI early so Erick could return to work tomorrow.  We’re now back in Charlotte and I’m as homesick as ever, but there’s plenty to do here to distract me from the immediate homesickness.  

The thing I miss most right now is Shetler’s milk in the glass bottles, seagulls and Lady dogs, friends and family and the opportunity to meet new friends with similar interests.  We didn’t see the dunes or Lake MI, nor did we visit the islands, but we did enjoy our visit very much.  So much so we thought it might keep us from ever leaving for Charlotte.
